Abstract:

The HP-85Mini-Ranger Navigation System consists of a general purpose personal computer and an off-the-shelf radar ranging device combined into an automatic and portable system for navigation near the shore. This system provides a real-time plot of ships position relative to fixed transponders. Time and position data can be printed on paper or saved on magnetic tape. The computer program can be modified for any specific geographic location, making the system a readily transportable tool. Author
