Abstract:

The International Bank for airborne-Omega data has begun operation at the Federal Aviation Administration FAA Technical Center. This first report issued by the Data Bank is based upon preliminary data for Pacific flights in fall 1978 and winterspring 1979 and upon data from North Atlantic flights in summerfall 1979 and winter 1980. At least three Omega stations were received during all phases of these flights. No significant seasonal variations or effects due to solar activity were noted in the signal-to-noise values. These values were highly repeatable under the same conditions with major drops due to ice cap attenuation and operation in areas of normally high very low frequency VLF noise. Differences in signal-to-noise between signals traversing daylightnight ice cap for both Greenland and Antarctica were noted. Author
