This module provides a basic understanding of the Earth’s properties, the various ways it is possible to navigate in aviation and the specific systems used to perform accurate navigation today. The module will review the development of navigation techniques and consider the basics of navigation, including the Earth’s magnetic influence. The module then addresses means of navigation and discusses the important aspects of accuracy and integrity and their link to continuity and availability.
The module goes on to introduce terrestrial and space-based navigation systems and considers how each system provides its signals and the limitations of the transmitted information. The module also covers on-board autonomous systems, such as inertial navigation systems and barometric altimetry. The module concludes with the linking of the navigation sensors to specific navigation specifications which are detailed in the ICAO performance based navigation (PBN) concept.
