Abstract:

A radar navigational system of remote control which is called the sector radio-range beacon, In foreign literature the system is called consol. is at the present time used in navigation for the determination of a ships location. The objective of the study is to acquaint the navigators with the operating principles of sector radio-range beacons, their tactical and technical data and the methods of determining the ships location. The second edition of the study in the sector radio-range beacons has been considerably revised in comparison with the first edition and enlarged for the reason that new sector radio-range beacons have been developed during the last years, that a considerable experience has been gained in their utilization, and that new methods of calculating ships location have been developed. The determination of the ships location based on foreign and Soviet sector radio-range beacons is illustrated by examples. The tables of bearing presented in this study will also be applicable in the future provided that changes in wave length and other elements of the radio-range beacons do not occur. Author
