In fact, nowadays it is commonly used on the ships in the form invented by Herman Anschutz before the Second Word War. However in the last decade we observe stormy evolution of completely different installations, which may substitute the well known gyro. Different kinds of devices, which could be used for heading determination, will be shortly presented and classified. Author?s thesis is that the new solutions are better than the old ones, nevertheless at the moment they are not in use only because of the mariners? conservatism.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Aids to Navigation (AtoN), Gyrocompass (Gyroscopic Compass), Gyroscope, Heading, Heading Determination, GPS Compass, Internall Correction, External Correction} }
