Abstract: THIS PAPER IS BASED in part upon the work of the Panel on Navigation and Traffic Control of the Space Applications Study conducted in 1967 and 1968 by the National Academy of Sciences and National Research Council under the sponsorship of the National Aeronautics and Space -4dministration. (Nevertheless the opinions expressed in this paper are those of the authors individually, and are not necessarily the opinions or conclusions of the NAS, the NRC, the NASA, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, or any other United States government agency.) The paper considers the applications of earth satellites to navigation and traffic control over ocean routes, particularly the North Atlantic. Marine surface vessels and aircraft could be served simultaneously by the same satellite system. Considerable cost benefits would accrue to both the marine and aviation industries. However, international cooperation would be required from both sides of the Atlantic in order to make the system workable and effective. This paper deals with the engineering and technical aspects of this international cooperation.
