NAVIGATION Author Resouce Center


Aims and Scope

NAVIGATION is a quarterly journal published by The Institute of Navigation. The journal publishes original, peer-reviewed articles on all areas related to the science, engineering, and art of Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) covering land (including indoor use), sea, air, and space applications. PNT technologies of interest encompass navigation satellite systems (both global and regional); inertial navigation; electro-optical systems, including LiDAR and imaging sensors; and radio-frequency ranging and timing systems, including those using signals of opportunity from communication systems and other non-traditional PNT sources. Articles about PNT algorithms and methods, such as for error characterization and mitigation, integrity analysis, PNT signal processing, and multi-sensor integration, are welcome. The journal also accepts articles on non-traditional applications of PNT systems, including remote sensing of the Earth’s surface or atmosphere, as well as selected historical and survey articles.


Professional navigators, astronomers, cartographers, photogrammetrists, meteorologists, engineers, physicists, educators, geodesists, surveyors, general aviation and airline pilots, mariners, yachtsmen, and anyone interested in position-determining systems, corporations, civil and military government agencies, private scientific and technical institutions, universities and training academies, and consulting firms
