"NEW INTEGRATED RADIO NAVIGATION SYSTEM" DESCRIBES NEW LOW-COST, HIGH-ACCURACY INTEGRATED RADIO NAVIGATION SYSTEM

To eliminate costly downtime in a geophysical vessel for recalibration purposes, the NANO-NAV Radio Navigation System was developed. This system has the capability of re-establishing lane count or, in essence, to recalibrate itself without returning to a known calibration point, thus is able to increase production time. A description of this system as a stand alone device is presented. The system is configured around a software program that optimally combines navigation information from a variety of radio sensors. The combinations of sensors discussed include the NANO-NAV System, Loran-C and a satellite receiver. The integrated character of this system allows continual automatic adjustment of each sensor. The software allows stand alone operation of each sensor as well as the combination of all sensors or any combination of sensors.
