what does "atmospheric navigation" refers to?

So, too, this seer, in reply to a query regarding what was then termed "atmospheric navigation," felt "deeply impressed" that "the necessary mechanism—to transcend the adverse currents of air, so that we may sail as easily and safely and pleasantly as birds—is dependent on a new motive power. This power will come. It will not only move the locomotive on the rail, and the carriage on the country road, but the aerial cars also, which will move through the sky from country to country."

  • Bear in mind, there were no airplanes then. travel through the atmosphere, an early way of saying this.

This is a term being used for the projects of UAV (Unmanned Areial Vehicles) for transmitting wireless Internet free of charge now.

Pls look at https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?2149212-Atmospheric-Navigation-for-UAV-s. It seems to be useful.

Or, read The history of Spiritualism to answer your question. The term you asked about is outdated.

  • Though, he seemed to dream about something like that. In terms of aeronautics, at least.
