How to use navigation in a sentence?

  1. Philip Hammond:

    We want to see claims dealt with by rules-based, not power-based, solutions in Asia as elsewhere, in a way that is consistent with the long-term peace and stability of the region, with freedom of navigation and overflight, and in accordance with international law.

  2. Matt Meilstrup:

    What we do is... we teach a lot of the practical elements, navigation, the fundamentals of how to combat causalities, how to stay on watches. Really, it’s training our officers to respond to whatever issues they may face in the future.

  3. Philippine Defence Minister Voltaire Gazmin:

    I will ask about the extent of the assistance they will give us, what they can do to help us because right now we are being oppressed, we feel concerned about what is happening in the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea). Freedom of navigation, freedom of flight is disrupted so that even U.S. aircraft flying at the international territory are challenged.

  4. Joel Babbitt:

    C-17s today have some limited data capability for the pilots and air command, including navigation and pilot communications back to air operations center, this brings high-speed data to the paratroopers in the cargo section of the plane. The amount of data required for mission command exceeds what the pilots have available to them.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    It's amazing that pigeons, lobsters, turtles, and even rats don’t get lost on their way, and unlike humans, they don't need either mapquest or Google Maps or GPS to find their way home. This is because they have built-in GPS within themselves. These animals rely on and leverage Earth’s magnetic field for orientation and navigation. The neural source of magnetic sense in pigeons are now found to be the single cells that encode three key positioning factors: the direction of a magnetic field, its intensity, and its polarity (north or south). It's so amazing. Centuries ago, the pigeons were used in India to send messages across hundreds of miles. By understanding how the pigeons process the computing and mapping in the brain, one day that info can probably be used to imorove the spatial orientation in human brains. And some day in future, we may not need a GPS in the car, because that GPS will be within us, built-in and totally internal to guide us at all times.
