Abstract : A computer analysis of VOR/DME and DME/DME area navigation is reported. The analysis includes three-dimension error models and an automated method of selecting the optimum stations to support an area navigation route structure. It is concluded that the computer program presented is useful for determining optimum stations to support an area navigation route. Additionally, certain subroutines can be used without the full analysis program to perform line-of-sight and geodetic calculations. (Author)
