This paper evaluates airborne radar as a navigational aid by comparing its accuracy with that of three other basic types of navigational systems. Advantages and disadvantages of its present use are discussed, and its probable future role is estimated. Design features which must be incorporated into airborne radar to improve its use as a navigational aid are noted, and the use of airborne radar for weather detection is discussed.
