Abstract:

To aid the Electronics Technology and Devices Laboratorys technical support of the ANPSN-4XE-1V2 military potential test at Fort Benning, Georgia, as requested by the Project Manager, NavigationControl Systems, the performance of this position locator and its time difference to Universal Transverse Mercator UTM coordinate converter was observed at 15 well-known geographic locations on the Fort Benning military reservation. The Easting UTM coordinate standard deviations were considerably greater than the Northing UTM coordinate standard deviations at most locations. A distinct correlation existed between the B-slave time difference TDB standard deviations and the Easting UTM coordinate standard deviations. It also appears that the locations of Control Sites SS 38, SS 53, and PS 5 were accurate to only 60 meters. Author
