Abstract: OMEGA IS A RADIO navigation system with the potential of providing world-wide coverage. Several of the systems characteristics, however, complicat’e its use in an airborne situation. This paper describes the preliminary results from flight testing equipment, assembled to verify the feasibility of real time airborne OMEGA navigation. In particular, the effects of diurnal variations in phase velocity and the low data rate will be discussed.
