NAVIGATION REQUIREMENTS OF AERIAL SURVEY OPERATIONS

Milton Glicken

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: THE AERIAL SURVEY BUSINESS is just like every other segment of the aviation industry in one respect: it considers it s problems entirely different from those of any other segment of the aviation industry. Operationally, it spans almost the whole spectrum, needing the freedom to operate at all altitudes from a few hundred feet up to 36,000 feet, in any direction, and any where in the free world, regardless of military of ATC restrictions. And of course it believes that the navigation problems that this broad requirement creates are different from everyone else’s. What they are is the subject of this talk. The navigation requirements of the aerial surveyors fall in two general categories–those for aerial photography and those for airborne geophysics.
