- Ever since travel began man has been faced with the problem of finding his location. Simple alignment with respect to known landmarks such as those of a coastline cannot be used in darkness and fog, and is useless for crossing the oceans. Many attempts have been made to find a navigation system which is reliable under all circumstances. At the beginning of this century navigation at sea was based upon sextant, magnetic compass and chronometer. In the first decades of this century the gyro-compass and radio-navigation systems were introduced. Still more recent are sophisticated navigation systems based on the application of inertial forces and making use of gyros and accelerometers. In this paper the RAMP system, a new inertial navigation system, is described. It uses a pendulum which indicates the change in the direction of the vertical in a moving vehicle.
