STATUS OF THE WORLDWIDE OMEGA NAVIGATION SYSTEM

James D. Garrison

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The policy statement in the 1984 edition of the Federal Radionavigation Plan states that OMEGA is a vital navigational aid to both maritime and aeronautical interests and will remain a part of the future U.S. radionavigation system mix until at least the year 2000. This paper provides a comprehensive report on the status of the system and reviews the Coast Guard’s plans for supporting OMEGA to insure that it remains a viable, cost-effective system during this extended operating period. Early system development and present configuration of the system are briefly reviewed, including transmitter locations and transmission parameters for each station. System performance goals, including the specifications of the transmitted signal parameters, are reviewed.
