Abstract : The report summarizes techniques for position location by trilateration using narrowband steady state methods suitable for use with Radio Set AN/VRC-12 which is a tactical Net Radio operating in the 30 to 76 MHz frequency range. Narrowband Position Location Systems, PLS, can be used when the equipment delay is measured or compensated, using suitable delay calibration. Two types of three-station PLS were investigated. The optimum type provides all data needed for PLS at the main base station without need for transmission of data over voice circuits of the three-station PLS. A section on Experimental Studies and Results is included. (Author)
