Abstract:

Working Group 04 was proposed by the Guidance and Control Panel as a follow-up to the Aerospace Applications Studies Committee No. 6 Use of precision positioning systems by NATO AR No. 88. The objectives of the working group were to consider the integration of GPS in aircraft systems and make recommendations for implementation. Considering the large number of possible applications, the work was confined to a particular range of military aircraft. The report consists of two volumes Volume I includes NAVSTARGPS description, examination of technical aspects of the system, applications to Counter Air Operations, Air Interdiction, Close Air Support Operations, Sea Patrol and Strike RPV, and recommendations. In volume II Classified NATO- CONFIDENTIAL which will be published later, are presented the results of four specific studies of the application of NAVSTAR to Close Air Support,
