DEVELOPMENT OF AN ALL-WEATHER HIGH PRECISION NAVIGATION SYSTEM FOR RIVERS AND HARBORS

Two parallel efforts aimed at the development of an all-weather high precision navigation system (PNS) for rivers, harbors, and their entrances have been undertaken by the Coast Guard's Office of Research and Development. The first, RIHANS (River and Harbor Aid to Navigation System), is a program to design and implement a new highly accurate navigation system from several competing concepts through four well-defined development phases. The second effort is to examine the accuracy potential of LORAN-C, particularly in the differential mode, to determine if LORAN-C is a viable candidate for the precision navigation system. The selection of finalists for PNS is scheduled for fiscal year 1975.
