THE INSTITUTE OF NAVIGATION IN PERSPECTIVE

Alton B Moody

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: It is widely known that “The Institute of Navigation is a scientific, nonprofit organization, founded in 1945. Its programs are directed toward advancing the science, art, and standards of navi- gation by coordinating the knowledge and achievements of practicing navigators, scientists, and those involved in the development and pro- duction of navigation equipment”. Less well known, perhaps, is the fact that this familiar statement of the “Purpose of the ION” was phrased by Dr. Paul Rosenberg, past President of The Institute, and that it was adopted officially by the Council at a meeting in Houston, Texas, on April 21, 1969, as a modification of an earlier statement.
