Abstract : This report contains an introduction to general navigational principles as applied to the use of doppler and inertial systems. This is followed by a description of both systems concerning methods of operation (such as steering), accuracy, etc. In-flight errors must be checked by some external ground-based navigation aids and this is discussed in some detail. A simplified procedure is given using VORTAC. After a description of airline flight planning, the impact of self-contained navigation techniques on the air-traffic-control system is discussed relative to en-route flying and the terminal area. It is concluded that doppler and inertial can be used successfully in domestic operations and that, subject to certain procedures, every encouragement should be given to all operators (including general aviation) to use doppler, and later inertial, in the domestic airspace.
