Abstract: THE PROBLEM OF NAVIGATION canbedescribed as the determination or estimation of present position and the control or guidance of a moving vehicle along a certain prescribed path. Present position can be determined by obtaining a fix; it can be estimated relative to a past fix by a velocity integration or by a double integration of acceleration, that is, by dead reckoning.
