CHARTS FOR LOW ALTITUDE NAVIGATION

Major Ernest B. Howey

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Some of the greatest scientific advances conceived by man have been necessitated by conflict and strife. From the terrible struggle of World War II the sciences of navigation and cartography have received unparalleled impetus. And with each advance in the field of military science the navigational chart maker finds his problems more theoretical, more challenging. I would like to pass along some of the reactions felt by ACIC as a result of the changes taking place; the effects of new weapons systems on chart design; how our problem-solution technique is applied, and a demonstration of the low altitude navigation problem.
