Abstract: In two or three years Omega radionavigation will cover the world, providing an earth-reference fixing system accurate to about one nautical mile. Over the past three years Canadian Marconi have been designing a computerized airborne Omega receiver, and for over one year, in flight evaluation of the receiver. The receiver design approach is examined, and results of operating experience in Northern regions from Alaska to NOrway are discussed and tabulated. Accuracy is shown to be time-independent, approximately one mile, for 10.2 and 13.6 kHz in Canada Arctic and European regions.
