Abstract:

This report describes flight tests performed to investigate the feasibility of using low-cost Omega avionics for enroute navigation, and to assess Omega navigation as a supplement to VORDME in remote areas. Tested was a prototype Mark III Omega receiver. Results indicate that low-cost Omega avionics provides acceptable guidance during quiescent propagation periods. Flights during diurnal transition periods of the day would require compensation for anticipated phase changes. There were no indications of terrain sensitivity at the minimum enroute altitudes flown.
