Abstract : The patent concerns a torso-mounted guidance package to be worn by an underwater swimmer. It incorporates a magnetometer circuit supplying earphones with dichotic and proportional course error signals. These signals are in the form of stimuli presented selectively to either the right or left ear of the swimmer, thereby providing him with information as to how far he is deviating from an oncourse heading to a pre-selected destination.
