Contrary to currently utilized traditional gyro-based inertial navigation, Non-Inertial Navigation (NIN) has based its functions on measurements of correlations between an object in motion and straight-line propagation of light in vacuum within. This approach allows for the measurements of a vector of velocity of the object in motion which further provides for digitizing a trajectory of the object’s motion in 3-dimensional space. As it stands, such discovery will eventually obsolete all inertial or gyro-based navigational avionics. Furthermore, this new class of NIN creates unprecedented opportunities for development of on-board Active Autonetic Autonomous Navigation (AAAN). Deployment of such systems will drastically change how we fly in space from civilian and military aviation all the ways to deep space explorations. The electrodynamic nature of linear measurements of the vector of velocity of an object in motion from within and from the motion itself will provide benefits unmatched by any existing methods.
Below is a list of a few benefits that NIN technology offers:
. Direct real-time velocity measurements with no instructional lag-time that are independent from influences of gravity where higher speeds actually enhance resolution
. On-board relativistic measurements that provide for computerized control via predetermine digitized trajectories
. Zoom-in, play-forward/ play-back capabilities of in-flight recorded or prerecorded trajectories
. Abilities to determine velocity and position during rotation and tumbling
. Autonomous high resolution flight control including retrieve/rescue capability
. Stable countermeasures proof operation in adverse conditions
. Stealth operation that is free of man-maid or natural interference

To underline all of the above it could be simply stated that: Non-Inertial Navigation to space navigation is what a jet propulsion to aeronautics was.
