THE HYDROGRAPHIC OFFICE

Commander J. T. Moynahan

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The United States Navy since its inception has been navigating and must continue to do so until there is no longer a Navy. The problems involved in navigating naval forces of ships and aircraft are constant and continuing problems which will never be fully solved SO long as the science of Naval Warfare progresses. Methods, systems, and devices which met the requirements of the U.S.S. Constitution are as outmoded on the U.S.S. Roosevelt as are its ancient armament and communication equipment. As a result of ever increasing requirements for precision and speed in navigation, the United States Navy will always be forced to improve the science and the implements therefor.
