Abstract: The flight characteristics of the supersonic aircraft are such that strong recommendations have been made for self-contained, accurate navigation and flight stabilization equipment. This paper discusses three types of equipment that can supply the required information: Doppler radar navigation systems, inertial navigation systems, and combined Doppler-inertial navigation systems. A brief description of each type of system is given together with a summary of its significant performance capabilities. The actual system configuration selected for this aircraft should be the most economical and reliable configuration that supplies the required outputs with the required accuracy. This paper attempts to describe the performance capabilities of these systems to aid in the selection when the navigation and stabilization requirements have been firmly established.
