ANDRADE, MS. ALESSANDA A.L. DE - The Global Navigation Satellite System: Navigating into the New Millennium.

Title: The Global Navigation Satellite System: Navigating into the New Millennium.
Description: Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 2001. First Edition, Hardcover. Fine Condition/Fine. 9780754618256 208 pages. Available Now. Book Description: The book constitutes a valuable guide to the implementation of the CNS/ATM system towards ensuring safe, efficient and orderly evolution of international air transport. It uses a pragmatic approach in addressing the major legal, institutional, technical, political and economic aspects underlying the Global Navigation Satellite System, which is expected to play a fundamental role in aviation safety and air navigation world-wide. The book also examines, through well-reasoned analysis and research, the various controversial and relevant issues which will dominate the system in the years to come. The author demonstrates a profound grasp of the subject-matter through a sustained absorption of technical, institutional and legal principles applying to this complex subject. This is brought to bear in the coherent structure and logical organisation of the chapters which makes the book an invaluable tool for the aviation community, scholars and national and international regulatory authorities. It will also be immensely useful for practitioners who work towards further development and implementation of the CNS/ATM system. There has been no comparable work previously published. : Review: 'Alessandra Andrade's book makes a major contribution to the three most prominent areas of development in the new millennium - telecommunications, air transport and electronic data interchange. The strongest thrust of the book is its eminent practicality. The author has moulded scholarly concepts into clear thought and extended these thoughts to practical issues relating to the subject. Anyone who is interested in the legal and economic aspects of the Global Navigation Satellite System in its scientific setting will find in this book a useful repository of analytical information, pragmatic advice and guidance.' Dr Ruwantissa Abeyratne, International Civil Aviation Organization, Montreal 'This timely study is a rich source of background information, deep analysis and meaningful reflection on one of the most critical developments of ordern aviation which will accompany us for the decades to come. The insightful survey demonstrates the author's profound grasp of the subject matter and offers the kind of analysis needed for central decisions with critical improtance to the progress of civil aviation... It will be indispensable to practitioners, academics and governments involved in the process of implementing GNSS and can be strongly recommended.'
