Abstract : The purpose of this study is to identify the capabilities and limitations of a particular set of navigation systems and evaluate their performance in the current airspace environment. The navigation systems evaluated are Loran-C, Omega, VHF Omnidirectional Range/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME), Global Positioning System (GPS), Doppler navigation system, and inertial navigation system (INS). In addition to detailed technical and operational analyses of each navigation system, consideration is also given to the constraints imposed by and the deficiencies existing in the standards by which accuracy and effectiveness of navigation systems are measured.
