Abstract : A user's manual is provided for Program NATNAV (North ATlantic NAVigation), a digital computer simulation program developed to evaluate the performance of navigation systems for future commercial NAT aircraft operations. Error models for aided-inertial navigation systems with external measurements from Doppler radar, Omega, satellite-ranging or air data are simulated. (Modified author abstract)
