This book, written just as GPS was emerging from its experimental stage, supplies fundamental theory and development useful for those not yet immersed in satellite and/or inertial navigation. After five hard cover printings it is now available in paperback. Abundant commendations were received from courses I taught with this book in the 1980s but, in preference to older endorsements, the following recent (2011) testimonial from IIT Bombay Prof. H.B. Hablani can be seen at facebook.com/pages/Vigil-Inc/118017154946809?sk=app_190322544333196About the Author:
