Abstract: On September 12, 1961, The Institute of Navigation convened a meeting in New York City to formulate a position regarding safe separation criteria for supersonic air transport. This paper stems in part from the need expressed at that meeting for data on the accuracy of navigation systems in use today and the separation standards they could make possible. Performance information is offered on the doppler system currently used by Trans-Canada Airlines, "navigation system" here being taken to embrace the whole loop, of which the human operator is part. Comments on the doppler approach to trans-oceanic navigation are appended.
