Abstract:

The Federal Radionavigation Plan FRP delineates policies and plans for radionavigation services provided by the U.S. Government to ensure efficient use of resources and full protection of national interests. Developed jointly by the U.S. Departments of Defense and Transportation, the FRP sets forth the Federal interagency approach to the implementation and operation of radionavigation systems. The FRP is updated biennially. This fourth edition describes respective areas of authority and responsibility, and provides a management structure by which the individual operating agencies will define and meet requirements in a cost-effective manner. Moreover, this edition contains the current policy on the radionavigation systems mix. Although previous editions of the FRP had pointed to a 1986 final recommendation on the future mix of radionavigation systems, the constantly changing radionavigation use profile and rapid advancements in systems technology, combined with delays in the U.S. space program, require that the FRP remain as dynamic as the issues it addresses. This edition of the FRP builds on the foundation laid by previous editions and further develops national plans towards providing an optimum mix of radionavigation systems for the foreseeable future.
