Abstract:

Operation END SWEEP was undertaken to clear mines from the harbor at Haiphong, North Vietnam. The Raydist T hyperbolic radio navigation system was used to provide precise navigation for the mine countermeasures helicopters. Automatic data processing with WANG equipment was used to establish the navigation reference stations, to plot navigation charts and important positions, and to determine navigational accuracy. A library of 10 programs was prepared by the Naval Coastal Systems Laboratory and used in the operational area by Task Force 78. Each program and instructions for its use are described in the report, while program machine code listings are contained in the supplement. The data processing equipment and programs performed very satisfactorily. Author
