Learning to Handle the Navigation Systems Onboard Submarines of the Northern Fleet

K.Ya. Bogomazov.
St. Petersburg, Concern CSRI Elektropribor, JSC, 2011 - 318 pages.

    Price: 250 RUR.

The book tells about the captains, navigators, and officers of navigation departments who were the pioneers in studying the operation of navigation systems onboard of all nuclear and diesel submarines with ballistic and cruising missiles.
Four generations of navigation systems were designed at CSRI Elektropribor within a comparatively short period. Elektropribor developed a unique precise electrostatically suspended gyro and ESG-based inertial navigation system, unique high precision correction aids such as radio sextants, highly stable marine gravimeters, complex computer systems for these navigation systems.
The text is based on the memoirs by the author and chief navigation officers, and on archive documents.
The book is interesting for the young officers, lecturers and students of the Navy Academies, and those who are interested in the history of Russian Navy.
