ALASKAN AIR NAVIGATION REQUIREMENTS. VOLUME I. OVERVIEW
This report describes the unique air navigation problems of the Alaskan Region. Present and future navigation aids are described relative to their applicability to this area. Conclusions as to the near term and far term feasibility of these alternatives are summarized. Recommedations for a near term solution are presented using VORTAC, NDB, and DME systems. An operational feasibility system using Differential Omega is also described for a possible far term solution. (Author)
