ALL WEATHER HELICOPTER NAVIGATION

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The Theme of This Symposium–LOW COST NAVIGATION–is one to challenge the best in all of us, and one which the Navy finds very topical in today’s environment. Two terms of common usage come to mind when considering the subject; Cost Effectiveness, and System Effectiveness. That then shall be my general frame of reference, with emphasis on the System Effectiveness. The constraints of an unclassified discussion will be evident in the lack of quantitative values in some portions of this paper, but I shall do my best to provide you with our philosophies and requirements in useful terms. Proper understanding of the subject presumes an acquaintance with the background of helicopter navigation systems as they exist today, and with the general concept of System Effectiveness. In order to validate the presumption I should like to dwell on those two elements briefly, so that we may in fact have a common platform of understanding of the Navy requirement and the current efforts underway in the Navy.
