Abstract: For over two decades commercial aviation has been seeking an accurate, self-contained, longrange, worldwide navigation system. That system exsits today in the form of the Sperry SGN-10commercial inertial navigator. While inertial navigation has been under intensive development and in quantity production over the same two decades, it has found utility exclusively in milit,ary type applications. During this period, commercial aviation needs were partially met by celestial, radio and doppler navigation. Military inertial navigation, however, provided the technological base from which commercial inertial navigation has evolved. It remained to devise, design and produce a new breed of navigator matched to the peculiar requirements of the commercial jet transport.
