The nature of improvements in equipment, procedures, and training needed to provide the Army with effective operational capability in low level navigation were indicated. Major conclusions from the survey include limited capability in low level aerial navigation as affecting future Army combat effectiveness the rapid reaction mission over unfamiliar terrain in low level navigation potential improvements in training or procedures for present navigation system and equipment a simple automatic dead reckoning navigation computer in routine attainment of operationally effective low level navigation performance and reorienting navigation procedures and training to simplified line of position navigation techniques.
