RIVER AND HARBOR AID TO NAVIGATION SYSTEM (RIHANS), PHASE 1-R, SYSTEM DEFINITION. VOLUME 1. SYSTEM AND EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION

The Coast Guard has initiated development of the River and Harbor Aid to Navigation System (RIHANS), an all-weather, short-range precision navigation system for use in harbor and harbor entrances. The report covers the results of the proposed RIHANS Phase-1, System Refinement Analysis and Technical Definition. The results provide equipment configuration, deployment configuration, cost projections, and accuracy analysis of the approach proposed to meet RIHANS requirements. The approach uses active ranging from ship equipments to transponders on fixed shore-based stations. Data communication is superimposed on the ranging function and this can support a port information dissemination function. (Author)
