Abstract
In the spring of 1980 a contract was let by the Department of National Defence to Rockwell International of the United States, the intent of which was to examine Rockwell's N73 Strapdown Inertial Navigation System's positional accuracy as well as its high latitude performance. Between May and September a total of twenty-eight test flights were flown, including four flights which originated at Canadian Forces Station Alert (latitude of 82 degrees 30.6' North). The paper describes those flights and presents the results obtained.
