Abstract : The methods of automatic coordinate reckoning continue to be improved on the basis of the success of aviation automation using analog and digital resolving devices having various electronic(including micromodular) elements and units. Today there are known numerous versions of instruments which perform the automatic computation of current MS coordinates; they receive from organizations-manufacturers in various designations: 'ground-position indicators,' 'navigation indicators,' 'navigation computers,' 'automatic navigation devices,' 'avigraphs,' 'navigation independent system,' and others. The questions of navigational use of only the geotechnic coordinate computers are considered which completely pertain to the use of more recent computers during their work in emergency conditions of the independent navigation system NAS-1.
