SPACE AND THE INSTITUTE OF NAVIGATION

Paul Rosenberg

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: TWELVE YEARS AGO, ten years before man launched the first artificial earth satellite, The Institute of Navigation recognized the need for studying the problems of space navigation. As technical adviser to the president of the ION in 1947, it was my privilege to organize the Institute’s first space committee, then called the Technical Development Committee for Upper Atmosphere and Interplanetary Navigation. Dr. Samuel Herrick and I served as co-chairmen of this Committee during the first three years of its existence, under the far-sighted leadership of Rear Admiral Gordon McLintock, USMS, then president of the ION.
