Abstract : The test was conducted to determine, through use of the Motorola prototype, if a personnel homing system (PHS) has significant military potential and to obtain insight into the desirable features of a PHS for the purpose of assembling parachutists or other forces in overt and covert operation or for alternate usages. Because of the technical difficulties of the PHS, it should not be considered for further testing until shortcomings noted in the test report analysis are corrected. (Author)
