Abstract:

This memorandum will discuss a method for determining range and bearing between two ships, through the use of a Burroughs 220-Digital Computer, from the Red and Green lane counts obtained when using a LORAC network. Previously, calculations of bearings and ranges were made using desk calculators. However, this was a long and tedious task which required the drawing of charts and the handling of voluminous numbers.
