Solent Branch Meeting - " The Navigation of Navigation"

  • 27/04/2017 19:00:00 to 27/04/2017 21:00:00
  • Warsash Maritime Academy, Newtown Road, Warsash, SO31 9ZL

Joint meeting with the Nautical Institute and UK Hydrographic Socy ( South). Speaker - Professor David Last FRIN - Past President of RIN.

Our Royal Instiute 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 and commerce, industry and telecomms. National goverments do not understand this new utiilty, and cannot cope with its vunerabilities. So, who is now responsible for the navigation of Navigation?


This meeting which is joint with the Nautical Instiute and the UK hydrographic Socy will be followed by the RIN Solent Branch AGM.

Prior booking will not be required and guests will be welcome.
