Abstract: AMONG THE RESPONSIBILITIES of the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) is that of performing research, development, experimentation, and evaluation, including necessary operational testing, to insure safety of flight with respect to air traffic control and navigation. To carry out this responsibility the FAA has a balanced program to determine requirements and match the state-of-the-art to them to provide means for safe, efficient utilization of the airspace. A review of the present air navigation situation and the FAA program to improve it, then, constitutes a status report on air navigation. The subject will be discussed under the four separate but related areas of approach and landing, short distance navigation, performance assurance, and long distance navigation.
