VLF NAVIGATION MONITOR: PURPOSE AND FUNCTION

An overview of the need for and the design of a vlf navigation monitor is presented. Fundamental errors associated with various vlf navigational techniques are discussed briefly; 2-mile accuracy or better is assumed typical. Safe operation within existing airways is normally possible, but protection against propagationally induced blunders should be provided by a navigation monitor. The monitor can be designed so as to provide not only disturbance warning but also disturbance prediction. The monitor can also assist in preflight.
