A hybrid aircraft navigation system has been developed using Omega signals for continuous position location information, with periodic position updates from the Navy Navigation Satellite System NAVSAT to improve the accuracy of the system. Laboratory tests and flight tests have demonstrated the performance of the NAVSATOmega hybrid system and have established high confidence levels in its ability to provide accurate position location information, and to resolve Omega lane ambiguities. This automatic system utilizes an Omega receiver, a NAVSAT Receiver, a small computer, and associated display units to provide real-time readout of latitude and longitude. Author
