This text examines the developments in aviation as it relates to instruments, radio navigation and communication. Beginning with the traditional systems and then examining the latest developments and technologies likely to emerge in the future. The author presents the topics in the order of instruments, radio propagation, communication, radio navigation, inertial navigation, and autopilot control. The book is meant to teach undergraduate students who study aerospace engineering on aviation topics such as radio and inertial navigation, communication, and autopilot control.

If you board a commercial flight, you will step onto an aircraft that has a significant redundancy of electrical power and safety systems with a high level of automation. The instruments in the cockpit show the pilots via highly ergonomic displays the attitude, height, climb rate, speed, and Mach number of the aircraft as well as the state of the engines and other factors such as the outside air temperature and the wind speed and direction. On-board weather radar informs the pilots of storms in the path with detailed information about the precipitation, turbulence, and the lateral and vertical extent of the storms. The navigation system takes inputs from GPS satellites, an inertial reference system (IRS), and VHF radio beacons; filters the information; and provides a precise indication of the position of the aircraft in three dimensions to within a few meters. These same instruments and navigation systems provide information to the autopilot, which can control the aircraft in height and position to follow a specific flight plan and land the plane at the destination airport if the latter has the necessary ground systems installed.
