Abstract: THIS PAPER EXPLORES the role of man as a navigator in commercial and military aircraft. Performance of the crew’s functions is considered in terms of the increasing stringency of requirements and the growing availability of navigation aids. These aids include sensors, information processing methods, and displays. The navigation task and some of the advanced means used in its performance are discussed for the environments of long-range flight, terminal areas, and specialized military missions. An evolutionary development has occurred during the past generation with respect to commercial and military requirements, technology, and the crew’s navigation functions. This development can be expected to continue into the future.
