Abstract: THIS PAPER DISCUSSES the electronic navigation systems likely to be found on airline aircraft in the first supersonic era. The trend is toward self-contained navigation systems, probably inertial, for primary navigation. The existing ICAO ground navigation systems will meet any remaining requirements for longrange navigation; VOR/DME and instrument landing will do the job at the-terminai ends. The paper deals with the need for back-up station-referenced aids to supplement selfcontained navigation systems and reviews the factors which bear on such requirements. The paper deals briefly with all-weather operations requirements and the validity of analytical methods in the development of separation standards.
