The RIN runs competitions to promote navigation in all areas. A summary of our current competitions
is given below and further details are available on the web page specific to each competition.
New Navigator Seminar
This Annual Competition is open to all PhD students to enter the selection proce
ss to enable them to explain their positioning and navigation research to a wide audience, and to gain an awareness of other developments in the domain.
Duke of Edinburgh's Navigation Award for Technical Achievement
In 2011, the RIN's Technical Excellence Award changed its name, becoming the Duke of Edinburgh's Navigation Award for Technical Achievement. In that year, it was awarded awarded to Barry Wade of Kelvin Hughes for his work on the SharpEye radar system.
New Professional Navigators' Award 2012
Candidates, between the ages of 18-28 from ALL fields of navigation are invited, and must be nominated by a university, college, employer or
cadet training organisation, who considers that their work or achievements - as a navigator in the widest sense - deserves recognition.
It is hoped that this Award will encourage the interest of new professional navigators in the work of the Institute and help them, in turn, to improve their own qualifications and status through the Institute and bring the Institute to the notice of fellow navigators in a variety of professional fields.
