Abstract: This paper deals on-going and planned Omega projects sponsored by the FAA Systems Research and Development Service. Existing Omega projects include a signal monitoring program in Canada, an airborne signal data collection project in cooperation with N.O.A.A., and an operational evaluation of the AN/ARN-99 Omega System on a commercial airliner. Planned projects include evaluation of a differential Omega system, development of a 3.4khz or coposite Omega airborne system, evaluations of low cost VLF/Omega equipment, and development of a civil aviation Omega system including the most promising techniques found in preceding investigations.
