Airborne anti-submarine warfare operations require a means of precise tactical navigation relative to an air-dropped sonobuoy pattern. Advantages and disadvantages of navigational techniques which could be used to solve this problem are discussed. An analysis is made of a previously proposed method to solve this problem by sonobuoy ranging concepts. The design of a prototype sonobuoy ranging system is described, and a preliminary evaluation is made of the accuracy of the prototype system.
