Four documents circa 1940-1941. The first, dated March 15, 1941, is a 24-page typed booklet entitled "Factors Determining Safety and Accuracy in Modern Airways", which talks about using radio waves to facilitate instrument navigation in three dimensions for aircraft. The second, dated August 23, 1940 extoles the virtue of the company's new Stratoscope that used a method of radio reception known as "panoramic reception" to give two-dimensional indications of distance and altitude, thus becoming an anti-collision device. A third, booklet, dated April 15, 1940 explains Panoramic Reception as an aid to navigation (definition: "the simultaneous reception of all signals contained in a given band of the frequency spectrum, in the form of individual visual deflections, indicative of the frequency as well as the signal strength of each station.") Finally, an undated single page flyer advertising Panaoramic reception ("shows a wide band of frequencies all at once").
