“The Navigation of Navigation”
Professor David Last FRIN
Past President of the RIN.
Our Royal Institute of Navigation is about navigation.
Navigation used to be about ships, aircraft and travel on land, at sea and in the air. But now GPS is ubiquitous and dominated by smart-phones, commerce, industry and telecoms.
Unlike gas, water and electricity, national governments do not understand this new utility and cannot cope with its vulnerabilities.
So who now is responsible for the navigation of navigation?
This meeting is a joint event with the Solent Branches of The Nautical Institute and Hydrographic Socy South held in the Whalley Wakeford Building of the WMA,
FOC and prior booking is not required. Members' guests will be welcome together with members of kindred organisations and students including RNSA, HSSC, R.Lym,YC, RAFYC and NCi
The meeting will be followed by the RIN Solent Branch AGM.( Brief - members only.)
