Abstract:

OMEGA is a very low frequency radio navigation system suitable for use by ships, aircraft and submarines. A network of four stations was established under the Navys direction toward a final configuration of an eight station world-wide long range radio navigation system. As part of the Navys development program for an airborne OMEGA navigation set, a receiver-converter was developed specifically to interface with the central computer in the P-3C aircraft, and provide a position update for geographic navigation. This paper will describe the P-3C OMEGA navigation integration and maintainability program for a production aircraft system, a flight test program, a laboratory replay program to give the capability of testing the various rate aiding sources, a laboratory simulation program to exercise the software mechanization over the parametric range of the variables, and present preliminary results from the flight test and the laboratory simulation.
