Description -

In navigation, dead reckoning is the process of calculating current position of some moving object by using a previously determined position, or fix, by using estimations of speed, heading direction and course over elapsed time.

 

The distinctive features of this method of navigation are:

  1. The D.R. position of the ship is used for working sights and plotting lines of position;
  2. There is no interpolation for practical navigation;
  3. The azimuth is most positively determinate;
  4. The solution is short, simple, and uniform under all conditions.
