TACTICAL AIRCRAFT POSITIONING

E. W. Bush

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: In an attempt to satisfy the need for a tactical aircraft command, control and positioning system, a number of systems have been tried. These candidate systems, including Loran and pulse radar, have provided less than desired performance primarily because of position accuracy. A C-W (continuous wave) radar system patterned after the An/USQ-28 SHIRAN system shows promise for a more satisfactory solution to the problem.
