Theoretical studies and field tests led to specifications for and subsequent development of an all weather, 24-hour operation, range-range type marine navigation system capable of reliably operating much farther from shore than previously available systems of this general type. It utilizes a single, relatively narrow band VHF or UHF channel, specially designed matched-filters, low-noise solid-state circuitry, and computer control to derive real-time position information in a semiautomatic manner at ranges up to 250 miles from shore.
