OMEGA NAVIGATION SYSTEM-A STATUS REPORT

Robert J. Wenzel

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Much of the current activity in the Omega program is in support of U.S. policy statements contained in the 1986 Federal Radionavigation Plan. The policy indicates we should plan on continuing operations until at least the year 2005. This calls for an examination of which system elements may need a capital investment for service life extension. We have begun necessary studies and can report preliminary results. Transmitting station equipments, including antennas, are being considered for redesign or replacement. Investigations also involve system monitors, system control software, and system propagation corrections. The studies will continue for the next few years and contribute to deliberations leading to biennial updates to the Federal Radionavigation Plan.
