Abstract:

This paper gives a survey and discussion of radio methods of distance measurement and position fixing, a general discussion of the important propagation characteristics and accuracy of radio wave methods, followed by a classification of systems and the advantages and disadvantages of radio methods. Also included is a description of various specific systems in use or under development, the types of application to which each is adapted, the range and accuracy already achieved and the limitations imposed by various factors, especially inherent propagation characteristics.
