Abstract: A VEHICLE DEPENDENT on navigation or communication radio receivers has to avoid a radio-noise contaminated area. Equations and curves are presented which are useful in analyzing the navigational problems when the requirement is to avoid areas contaminated by a radio-noise source. For preliminary analysis purposes, an adequate geometric description of a noise area is completely determined by only two parameters, one of which is a simple separation distance and the other a parameter which as been referred to, by some writers, as “equivalent received excess required signal to noise power ratio.” A literature search has not revealed pertinent predecessor treatment of this subject area.
