Editor’s Note: Don Jewell was a member of RNT Foundation’s first Advisory Council. As a practical navigator, scientist and student of public policy, he was an articulate and insightful observer whose contributions were of great value to any discussion of PNT. He will be greatly missed.
With great sadness we report that Don Jewell passed away unexpectedly on October 12. For more than nine years Don wrote the Defense PNT monthly e-newsletter column for GPS World, after a distinguished career in the U.S. Air Force, retiring as Deputy Chief Scientist for Air Force Space Command with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. A service of remembrance and celebration of his life was held on October 20 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
