A new satellite-based radio navigation system from the USSR is described. The system is particularly designed for a fleet of ships, such as fishing fleets, where frequent monitoring of individual ships is necessary. The system is configured for high- precision determination of vessel position under diverse weather conditions and in restricted waters. The operating principles and procedures of the computerized radio navigation system are discussed, and are compared with existing satellite-based navigation systems operated by the U.S., UK, and the USSR. It is concluded that the superior accuracy and versatility of the proposed system would more than compensate for its high production and emplacement costs.
