Abstract:

The paper summarizes the results of tests conducted aboard the USS GYATT DD-712, during the period 9 through 16 September 1966. The Navy Navigation Satellite System NAVSAT and the OMEGA Navigation System were evaluated using precise RADAR fixes from the Wallops Island RADAR Tracking Station as a yardstick. NAVSAT and OMEGA fixes gave position differences less than 0.5 nautical miles and 2 nautical miles, respectively. Author
