Remembering Doc Draper

Known as the “father of inertial navigation,” Dr. Charles Stark Draper was a professor of aeronautics and astronautics at MIT, where he founded the Institute’s Instrumentation Laboratory in the 1930s. Today this lab functions as a separate, nonprofit research and development laboratory that bears his name. This video includes vintage footage of Doc Draper and fond recollections from his Course 16 colleagues.

To view the entire Remembering Doc Draper video, visit the Aero-Astro collection on TechTV.
