Abstract:

RIHANS Phase II of a precision navigation system for use in rivers and harbors covered the design and construction of equipment, laboratory tests, and field demonstrations. The TRACOR RIHANS approach was a low frequency, hyperbolic system that operated on the principle of phase comparison of time shared multiple frequency CW signals much like OMEGA. The equipment consisted of three shore station and a monitor station Service Segment, and three receiving equipments Position Determining Equipments, PDE. After extensive laboratory testing at the TRACOR facilities, the system was given a limited field test in the Austin, Texas area. This was followed by more extensive field tests in the Galveston, Texas area.
