Book Summary:

You might think stress-free navigation sounds like an impossible paradox. But it need not be. All boaters, whether under sail or under power, need to be able to navigate safely on the water – both to keep themselves and their crew out of trouble and to avoid endangering others. Yet navigation has often been presented almost as a black art – complicated, full of tricky maths, and with alien concepts to get your head around. Step in 'Mr Stress-Free': having in his previous books presented techniques for sailing and motorboating in an accessible, manageable fashion, Duncan Wells now turns his attention to navigation. He makes concepts easy to understand and the practice of navigation perfectly achievable for all – with minimum stress. The book covers the basic introductory elements clearly and simply for novices, and progresses through more advanced techniques for experienced navigators, so that there is something for everyone, whatever their skill level. Diagrams, quick-reference tables and flowcharts, explanatory step-by-step photographs, box features, top tips and QR codes – giving access to explanatory videos – are all features that have been much appreciated by readers of Duncan's other top-selling titles.

Book Summary:

Covers the latest developments in PNT technologies, including integrated satellite navigation, sensor systems, and civil applications Featuring sixty-four chapters that are divided into six parts, this two-volume work provides comprehensive coverage of the state-of-the-art in satellite-based position, navigation, and timing (PNT) technologies and civilian applications. It also examines alternative navigation technologies based on other signals-of-opportunity and sensors and offers a comprehensive treatment on integrated PNT systems for consumer and commercial applications. Volume 1 of Position, Navigation, and Timing Technologies in the 21st Century: Integrated Satellite Navigation, Sensor Systems, and Civil Applications contains three parts and focuses on the satellite navigation systems, technologies, and engineering and scientific applications. It starts with a historical perspective of GPS development and other related PNT development. Current global and regional navigation satellite systems (GNSS and RNSS), their inter-operability, signal quality monitoring, satellite orbit and time synchronization, and ground- and satellite-based augmentation systems are examined. Recent progresses in satellite navigation receiver technologies and challenges for operations in multipath-rich urban environment, in handling spoofing and interference, and in ensuring PNT integrity are addressed. A section on satellite navigation for engineering and scientific applications finishes off the volume. Volume 2 of Position, Navigation, and Timing Technologies in the 21st Century: Integrated Satellite Navigation, Sensor Systems, and Civil Applications consists of three parts and addresses PNT using alternative signals and sensors and integrated PNT technologies for consumer and commercial applications. It looks at PNT using various radio signals-of-opportunity, atomic clock, optical, laser, magnetic field, celestial, MEMS and inertial sensors, as well as the concept of navigation from Low-Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites. GNSS-INS integration, neuroscience of navigation, and animal navigation are also covered. The volume finishes off with a collection of work on contemporary PNT applications such as survey and mobile mapping, precision agriculture, wearable systems, automated driving, train control, commercial unmanned aircraft systems, aviation, and navigation in the unique Arctic environment. In addition, this text: Serves as a complete reference and handbook for professionals and students interested in the broad range of PNT subjects Includes chapters that focus on the latest developments in GNSS and other navigation sensors, techniques, and applications Illustrates interconnecting relationships between various types of technologies in order to assure more protected, tough, and accurate PNT Position, Navigation, and Timing Technologies in the 21st Century: Integrated Satellite Navigation, Sensor Systems, and Civil Applications will appeal to all industry professionals, researchers, and academics involved with the science, engineering, and applications of position, navigation, and timing technologies. pnt21book.com

Book Summary:

The aviation community, in which the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Civil Air Navigation Services Organization (CANSO) play leading roles, is hard at work in bringing aviation into the 21st Century. In doing so, the United States and Europe have taken proactive steps forward in introducing modernization, particularly in moving towards more efficient air traffic management systems within NextGen and SESAR. Elsewhere, in the fields of personnel licensing, rules of the air, accident investigation and aeronautical charts and information, significant strides are being made in moving from mere regulation to implementation and assistance calculated to make all ICAO member States self sufficient in international civil aviation. However, these objectives can be achieved only if the aviation industry has a sustained understanding of the legal and regulatory principles applying to the various areas of air navigation. This book provides that discussion. Some of the subjects discussed in this book are: sovereignty in airspace; flight information and air defence identification zones; rules of the air; personnel licensing; meteorological services; operations of aircraft; air traffic services; accident and incident investigation; aerodromes; efficiency aspects of aviation and environmental protection; aeronautical charts and information; the carriage of dangerous goods; and NextGen and SESAR . Except for NextGen and SESAR, these subjects form the titles of the Annexes to the Chicago Convention that particularly involve the rights and liabilities of the key players involved in air navigation.

Book Summary:

Navigation fundamentally provides information on position, velocity and direction which are needed for travel in ocean, land, air and in space. The myriad forms of navigation developed so far are collectively called modern navigation. This recent text discusses new promising developments that will assist the students when they enter their future professional career. It is the outcome of authors’ wide experience in teaching, research and development in the field of navigation and inertial sensors. The content of the book is designed to impart adequate knowledge to the students in the area of navigation and related sensors. The text discusses inertial navigation, inertial sensors, MEMS based inertial sensors, satellite navigation, integrated inertial navigation, signal processing of inertial sensors and their applications. The chapters introduce all the topics in an easy to understand manner so that an appreciative understanding of the text matter can be made without resorting to equations and mathematics. Considerable references have been provided to enable both the students and the professors to dwell and learn more on the topics of their interest. This textbook is primarily intended to meet the academic needs of undergraduate and postgraduate students of aerospace engineering and avionics.

Book Summary:

Stress-free Motorboating is the answer to all single- or short-handed crews' prayers. Highly illustrated with step by step photographs, this unique handbook tackles the most common motorboating situations anyone cruising along the coast or river will have to manage - whether cruising along a river or the coast. It covers tricky procedures for getting off (and then back on) a marina berth, anchoring, mooring to a buoy or jetty, motoring in big seas, entering locks, and even picking up a man overboard, with QR codes linking to helpful instructional action videos. Essential advice is given about fuel monitoring, engine care and maintenance, looking after batteries, and many more issues specific to motorboats. Stress-free Motorboating will be a godsend to all crews, whether aboard a 35-footer, a sports runabout or a 60-foot displacement cruiser, whether crossing the Channel or just pottering along the coast or a river.
