Abstract:

The report contains 2 program development plans that provide the framework for the development of CONUS and Oceanic Navigation Systems necessary for projected traffic loads into the 1980s. Program goals, approach, development activities, and expected results are set forth. The program is based on the continuing role of VORTAC as the primary means of navigation in the airways system into the 1980s. Concurrently programs have been established to determine the feasibility for adoption of VLF systems, such as Omega, for aviation users in both oceanic and continental applications.
