Abstract : Certain possible layouts of inertial navigational systems with three Newtonometers and a device to measure the distance to the surface of the earth are examined. Analysis is reduced to the following assumptions: the earth is held to be a sphere, its field of gravity is central; it is proposed that an object moves at a constant distance from its surface; instrument errors in the navigation system are not considered. In the following hypothesis equation of the ideal operation and equations of the errors of the navigational systems, differing from known errors, are obtained. The equations of errors are analyzed for very simple motions of the object. (Author)
