Abstract:

A method of radiolocation is discussed which permits obtaining a fix from measurements made at a single receiving station. The great circle distance between the transmitter and receiver is determined from the time delay between the signal transmitted via the short path to the receiver and the signal transmitted via the long path around-the-world to the receiver. The bearing of the signal is obtained by a Wullenweber type radio direction finder. Results of an experiment in which signals transmitted from stanford, California to Champaign, Illinois were studied showed that the great circle distance could be determined within 25 kilometers. The transverse distance was determined within about 50 kilometers. Author
