Abstract:

This report covers the development and Engineer ing Tests of the Short Range Electronic Position ing Equipment SREPE conducted by USAEGIMRADA in the Northern Virginia Test Area, at USAERDL, Ft. Belvoir, Virginia, and at the Arctic Test Facilities at Ft. Greely, Alaska. The primary objective of this development was the provision of an all-weather, day-night, highly portable system for determining survey positions, specif ically for use by Artillery units operating within the 10- by 10-mile area concept of the Artillery Survey System. The equipment as tested will enable an unlimited number of passive, man portable receivers to receive signals transmitted from the base stations which can be converted to UTM coordinates of each receiver either by plot ting at the site or by a FADAC computer at some convenient location. Erroneous positional data may result through poor site selection with re spect to the proximity and orientation of local conductors such as power lines, telephone lines, and wire fences. Furthermore, the system can be jammed by a radiator of sufficient power and proximity within 50 cycles of the assigned frequency for the base station transmitters. Author
