OMEGA SYSTEM PERFORMANCE PREDICTIONS

Abstract: Under normal atmospheric conditions the Omega navigation system provides world-wide coverage with a potentially high index of accuracy. To a large degree the achieved performance depends heavily upon the processing algorithm employed in the mobile terminal. This dependence is illustrated for two classes of receivers which were configured to emulate hyperbolic regimes based upon alternate station selection criteria. Both receiver sets were exercised on a world-wide basis for position fix ensemble sizes of three, four and five transmitter stations. Results are given in terms of contours and histograms of the predicted rms position error and capsule statistics of the overall global performance.
