Abstract:

This report describes the results of a jet-flight evaluation of Inertial Navigation System INS performance in the commercial-airline operational environment, both domestic and overwater. Evaluation objectives included 1 assessment of the compatibility of inertial techniques with the present Air Traffic Control ATC System, 2 determination of the relative accuracy of inertial navigation as compared with VORDME navigation, 3 assessment of inertial-system updating requirements, 4 evaluation of pilot-workload effects, and 5 investigation of several other aspects of the use of an inertial system in the commercial-airline environment.
