Abstract:

A Sea trial was conducted in the first half of 1983 to test the accuracy of Differential Omega at sea and to compare the results with those obtained on land in the Pilbara region in 1980. Base stations were established at Albany and Esperance in Western Australia. Position measuring equipment utilising the Differential Omega system was set up on board HMAS Moresby and positions obtained by the Differential Omega system were compared with those obtained by the Argo system. This report describes the exercise and discusses the results obtained. Author
