In their preview of radionavigation of the future, the authors suggest that some of the basic elements of present navigation systems will be retained; however, technology will change the way they are used. Improvements and availability of long-range navigational aids will play an ever-increasing role. Predictions are offered regarding the future status and applications of radio beacons, Omega, Transit, and Loran-C. The authors express the opinion that when the Global Positioning System becomes operational, it may prove to be the answer to all of the mariner's navigational needs.
