DIFFERENTIAL OMEGA IN THE ALASKA/YUKON REGION: AN ANALYTIC ASSESSMENT

This report presents an analytic evaluation of the differential Omega experiment being conducted by the Federal Aviation Administration in the Alaska/Yukon region. An error model for Omega propagation prediction residuals is used to predict performance achievable with an equipment suite consisting of a TRACOR 599R Omega monitor receiver and associated ground station equipment built by Transport Canada, and an airborne suite which includes a modified TRACOR 7620 Omega navigation set and special-purpose differential Omega equipment built by Systems Control, Inc. (Vt.). Predictions are made for use of the equipment as a non-precision approach aid within the differential Omega coverage area and for use as an enroute navigation aid between areas serviced by a differential Omega ground station.
