RIVER AND HARBOR AID TO NAVIGATION SYSTEM (RIHANS). PHASE 2T: EXPERIMENTAL RESOLUTION OF TECHNICAL UNCERTAINTIES
RIHANS Phase II of a precision navigation system for use in rivers and harbors covered the design and construction of equipment, laboratory tests, and field demonstrations. The TRACOR RIHANS approach was a low frequency, hyperbolic system that operated on the principle of phase comparison of time shared multiple frequency CW signals; much like OMEGA. The equipment consisted of three shore station and a monitor station (Service Segment), and three receiving equipments (Position Determining Equipments, PDE). After extensive laboratory testing at the TRACOR facilities, the system was given a limited field test in the Austin, Texas area. This was followed by more extensive field tests in the Galveston, Texas area.
