When implementing electronic counter reconnaissance or other electronic countermeasure missions on moving platforms, operating personnel working on the platforms must grasp in real time the exact position of the platform itself. In command posts or control centers, there is a need to understand, in real time, the direction of platform movements. When implementing the positioning of emitting sources, precise platform locations are even more indispensable. In the past, on aircraft, reliance was put on inertial navigation systems and aviation instruments to provide data and, after processing, precise positions. The limitations associated with making use of this type of method are relatively large. precisions are not high. Real time characteristics are relatively bad. Opting for the use of digital transmission navigation display systems based on global satellite navigation systems avoids the shortcomings discussed above. Moreover, it is possible to conveniently generalize application to various types of mobile platforms.
