Abstract: Successful use of the OMEGA Navigation System requires external information on the system coverage (i.e., spatial and temporal accessibility of “usable” signals from the OMEGA system) in selecting OMEGA signals for position fix computations. This paper reviews the published OMEGA signal coverage information and describes in detail the type (and basis) of the coverage information currently disseminated by the U.S. Coast Guard OMEGA Navigation System Center. Assessments of the worldwide coverage provided by the system and the impact of OMEGA transmitting station outages on the system coverage are also given.
