(Redirected from OOD)
The OOD, or Officer of the Deck monitors the CIC's operation in the absence of the ship's commanding officer. The OOD generally carries out or relays the command officer's standing orders.
In the absence of a command officer, the OOD has the conn, but typically calls the commanding officer before taking any action if time allows.
