THE USE OF RADIO SEXTANTS IN MARITIME NAVIGATION

Dr. Gene R. Marner

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Maritime navigation continues to play an important role in the affairs of the world. The military strength of the western countries depends heavily upon naval operations. Merchant marine operations are vital to both military and economic strength. Continue development of national economies has increased dependence upon international trade. As the underdeveloped countries of the world expand their economies we may expect further trade expansion. We must recognize also that severe tensions exist throughout the world. While diplomatic efforts are being devoted toward relaxation of tensions, it appears realistic to assume that we will face further tensions of a complex nature for many years in the future. This condition should be considered in planning future improvements inmarine navigation.
