Abstract : The problem of estimating probable reliability or accuracy of specific sets of direction-ofarrival data and the problem of using knowledge of the ionosphere for the correction of such data for use in radio location are considered in the light of proved state-of-the-art techniques. The stated conclusions are that the solution to the first problem is dependent on the specific system involved, that no technique proposed for the solution of eiher problem has yet beenADEQUATELY PROVED, AND THAT FURTHER EXPERIMENTAL AND THEORETICAL WORK ON BOTH AREAS IS REQUIRED. A brief description is given of some aspects of an experimental program (those aspects with which this contract is directly involved) designed to provide answers to the above questions. (Author)
