Abstract: The primary use of Omega signals is to extract phase information as a means of fixing an observer’s position. This paper considers the feasibility and potential applications of extracting directional information from Omega or other VLF signals. This directional information could be used as input to a gyro-magnetic compass as an alternative to the magnetic input. It could also be used to assist the tracking and thus improve the position fixing capability of the Omega receiver itself.
