Abstract:

This report summarizes the Phase 1 development work completed in January 1973 on the Super ReceiverNavigator for the US Air Force. The functional design of an improved Loran receivernavigator that employs new measurement and data processing techniques is described. Design definitions of the Radio Frequency Unit, the Digital Measurement Unit, and the Receiver and Navigator software are provided. Software routines were run on the IBM 36091 digital computing system at APL using simulated input data. Performance predictions of the Super ReceiverNavigator, based on the results of these runs, are also supplied.
