Abstract

IN covering British activities in the inertial guidance field, it is appropriate to include a brief picture of developments in the historical sense so that British achievements can be seen in perspective especially with regard to the state‐of‐the‐art in the United States. We will also deal with the application of inertial navigation systems to the civil field for, although at the moment every production inertial quality system in service is being operated in a military rôle, civil aviation is on the threshold of adopting inertial techniques.
