Abstract: INTRODUCTION CONSIDERATION OF AN ENVIRONMENT in which operational data and Experience are limited to the military, is a difficult assignment at the best of times. In order to discuss, with some degree of intelligence, the long range navigation system considered desirable in the supersonic environment, we have relied mainly on the process of extrapolation using existing data and operational “know how” to formulate pract,ical guidelines. A large scale data collection exercise is being conducted in the Nort,h Atlantic (NAT) to determine, with some degree of validity, the navigational capability of the current family of turbojet aircraft operating in the region. The results of this exercise should go a long way towards determining not only the overall navigational capability but, in addition, the optimum system currently being employed with respect to aircraft equipment and crew complement.
