The book is the record of the proceedings of the fourteenth symposium of the Avionics Panel held in Milan from 12-15th September 1967. The purpose of the symposium was to review the needs of navigators, the possible means of meeting these needs in the near future and also the likely systems for use perhaps a decade hence. The first session set out the future requirements for navigation on the one hand for aircraft and on the other for hydrographic and oceanographic vessels. The second session was concerned with general ground-based navigational aids. Satellites for air and marine navigation and traffic control was the title of the third session. The last session on the supporting technology for navigation was noteworthy for the marked advances in geodesy which have followed the study of satellite orbits. ( Author )
