Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The opportunity to significantly improve radio navigation capability is discussed. The main issues concern the military requirement for exploiting this technical opportunity and of the several viable alternatives which should be pursued. The advantages of a satellite-based system are analyzed and compared with other technical approaches. The paper suggests that a satellite-based system offers enough potential capability and relatively low risk to justify a feasibility demonstration program.
