Abstract : The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility of supporting the Seek Frost unattended and minimally attended radar sites by helicopter. This paper reviews the navigation systems, facilities, ground support equipment and airborne installed equipment that would ensure a high reliability and capability of the Seek Frost Support Helicopter. Field trips were made to major civilian helicopter companies to incorporate their world wide experience in helicopter operations into the design concept. Present, in place, equipment along the Dew Line is not addressed.
