MetadataShow full item record
A navigation system has been established on Monterey- Bay using the LORAC principle of phase- comparison. It is intended primarily for use in ocean sciences research within a 25 mile radius of Moss Landing, California. The system offers the capability of repeating a previously held position within a few feet, and may be used as a general navigation aid in the area with accuracy on the order of 100 yards. The theory of operation and error-causing factors are discussed in details Transmitter and receiver installations are described. Chapter IV is intended to serve as a self-contained user's guide, with instructions on the operation of the receiver, suggested techniques for use, and a description of the performance to be expected. A computer program is included to provide grid charts with hyperbolic position lines plotted for any desired area or scale. Brief initial testing indicated a high degree of stability and repeatability, however further evaluation over a longer period is necessary.
