THE NAVIGATION SYSTEM FOR SUPERSONIC TRANSPORT AIRCRAFT

M. A. Paradiso

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The Navigation systems for the March 3 transport need not be as sophisticated as many engineers and operators may heave anticipated. Equipment now under development for advanced manned aircraft and aerospace vehicles have characteristics exceeding the navigation system requirements anticipated for the supersonic transport aircraft. The systems tentatively selected to perform the navigation tasks adequately can be developed from existing technology. The final selection of specific airborne navigation equipment will depend on the actual 1970 air traffic control procedures and characteristics of the ground-based aids. Although this material only represents a partial summary of the studies to date, it is assumed that subsequent detailed studies will not alter the results-they will merely refine them.
