Capt. Henry Bress

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: THE NAVY REQUIRES a world-wide continuous coverage, air, surface, and subsurface navigational capability which will support the effective accomplishment of all assigned tasks at any time and under all condition, (all weat,her, day, night, peace or war). In meeting requirements for navigation and control of Naval vessels we reIy on great varieties of equipments and techniques ranging from the simple compass and sextant to the hyperbolas of LORAN-from dead reckoning to computations of the Navy Navigational Satellite System and many others. The ultimate goal should be one system, common to all users cost, effective, with little or no error.
