Abstract : The fundamentals of a system are explained for tracking both submarine and surface models in the maneuvering basin at the David Taylor M ODEL Basin. he sy tem employs underwater ultrasonic ranging techniques to establish, repetitively, the horizontal rectangular coordinates of a model-borne transmitter. The discussion includes mathematical considerations, instrumentation measurement techniques, a description of experimental instruments, and the results of evaluation experiments. (Author)
