PRESENT NAVIGATION SYSTEM CAPABILITIES AND AN ESTIMATE OF THEIR WORTH FOR SUPERSONIC TRANSPORT OPERATIONS

Abstract: THIS PAPER has two main objectives, the first of which is the expansion of some thoughts expressed at The Institute of Navigation’s 18th Annual Meeting in San Diego, Calif., in June 1962. At that time data were offered on the accuracy of Trans-Canada Airlines’ navigation system, with an outline of the in-flight techniques and the postflight analysis methods which had been used. Much that was written then applies to this paper, but since it was reproduced in the Autumn 1962 issue of the Institute’s Journal as little as necessary will be repeated. The second objective is to comment on the job to be done on civil supersonic transports. In the paper you will doubtless observe something of the concern we believe we share with many operational people about the form of future aircraft navigation.THIS PAPER has two main objectives, the first of which is the expansion of some thoughts expressed at the Institute of Navigation’s 18th Annual Meeting in San Diego, Calif., in June 1962.
