Abstract:

The ANBRN-7 OMEGA Navigation Set was designed for aircraft and modified for submarine use. This receiver is primarily designed to supply the submarine with instantaneous navigation information within 1-2 NM when operating in the OMEGA signal environment. Additionally, the BRN-7 provides a dead reckoning capability when no OMEGA signals are received or during submerged submarine operations. This project was conducted to evaluate the ANBRN-7 OMEGA Navigation Set in a submarine operational environment in order to determine its suitability for service use.
