This publication will present a truly intelligent account of the fundamental principles on which the design of all contemporary systems of marine navigation bases. They have all been placed in context with the essential methods of navigation and addressed in the introductory part of the volume.
The material contained in the book has been arranged in the following way – first of all, the author addresses the navigation itself, including the history of navigation and different classical methods of celestial navigation, and then proceeds to introducing readers to the quantum ideas. In the final third the author is dealing with the navigation based on satellite systems, for instance the GPS and orbit theory – virtually everything is covered here.
The publication is mainly intended to be used by the non-specialists in the field of navigation but still possessing some basic understanding of engineering. The very broad range of different aspects relating to the development of both space and surface navigation has been covered, and every effort was made to avoid any mathematical formalism that would make reading difficult and too complicated. All technological advanced in marine navigation have been well documented in the pages of this brilliant book.
