Abstract : The report is a synopsis of a five-year effort of research and development activities into low-level, all-weather aircraft navigation. Various disciplines supporting radio navigation research were pursued in this work and reflected in the report which include computer simulation, communications, electronics, electromagnetics, digital computer technology, control theory, and mathematics. The scope of the work included tradeoff analysis among competing ideas, optimization of system parameters, alleviation of critical implementation problems, invention of new and/or improved structures for radio navigation purposes, and the synthesis of conceptual ideas which were subsequently simulated, analyzed, implemented in prototype form and experimentally evaluated.
