This book gives a non-technical introduction to the principles of hyperbolic position fixing systems (Decca, Loran-C and Omega) and of the Transit navigation satellite system. Clear graphic presentation is used to explain how the systems work and what their characteristics and possible pitfalls are. The navigational capabilities of processor-based shipboard receivers are reviewed with the first-time user especially in mind.

Edition: 1987
