Navigation is a study of art/science of finding a path from one place to another
place. In 15th century the word navigation is invented and it is derived from the
Latin word “navis” which means “ship”. Navigation is exactly “art of ship
knowledge”. Navigation is one of the key parameters in our daily lives. The
fundamental navigational skills are employed to human beings such as going to
work place or walking to school and so on. This navigation skills requires the
eyes to see, decision making and landmark. In order to know the accurate position
and travel time the land marks are not sufficient, hence there is a requirement of
navigation aids. Navigation aids are more complex because the involvement of
electronic transmission of the signals and these are termed as radio-navigation
