Abstract : The work expounds the bases of the theory of inertial systems designed for naval navigation, the principle of action of their component elements and questions of long-term development of inertial navigation for the naval fleet. As the basis of the book there are the somewhat expanded and consideration is given to the kinematics of systems of inertial navigation, oriented in certain coordinate systems, which are of interest for the naval fleet, composed of block diagrams of inertial reference-points in these coordinate systems; also considered are certain specific errors of naval inertial systems, and principles are presented of automatic pilotage using inertial systems.
