Omega Compass Applications

Ian D. Birch, John F. Kemp

Abstract: The primary use of Omega signals is to extract phase information as a means of fixing an observer's position. This paper considers the feasibility and the potential applications of extracting directional information from Omega, or other VLF, signals. The directional information could be used as an input to a gyro-magnetic compass as an alternative to the magnetic input. It could also be used to assist the tracking and thus improve the position fixing capability of the Omega receiver itself.
