Abstract: INTRODUCTION BASIC TO THE PROBLEM of air traffic congestion, is the fact that while the number of aircraft to be accommodated has been increasing, the dimensions of allocated airspace have remained constant. One factor which must be examined if present congestion problems are to be minimized and eventually eliminated, relates to the problem of aircraft navigation. If the accuracy of reliable cockpit navigation can be economically increased, the impact upon air traffic congestion will be significant. The increased navigational self-sufficiency of the aircraft will permit a reduction in the air traffic controller’s workload; also, it will permit a reduction in the required airspace allocation without adversely affecting safety of flight considerations.
