Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to derive a specification for a Submerged Submarine Navigation Aid for the approximately 40 by 100 mi Exuma Sound Operational Range of AUTEC. The Navaid is to have an accuracy of 50 yd for a submarine traveling at a depth between 150 to 1500 ft and at a speed of up to kn. To meet the above requirements, the following items were accomplished. 1 Experimental program. Tests on site and attendant data reduction to determine parameters necessary to the study but with unknown values. 2 Configuration study. Determination of the navigation geometry, system parameters and computer configuration using available data as well as data derived from the experimental program. 3 Operations analysis. Determination of beacon placement, power supply method and growth potential for optimum system accuracy, cost and reliability.
