CONTINUED INVESTIGATION OF POTENTIAL APPLICATION OF OMEGA NAVIGATION TO CIVIL AVIATION

Major attention is given to an analysis of receiver repeatability in measuring OMEGA phase data. Repeatability is defined as the ability of two like receivers which are co-located to achieve the same LOP phase readings. Specific data analysis is presented. A propagation model is described which has been used in the analysis of propagation anomalies. Composite OMEGA analysis is presented in terms of carrier phase correlation analysis and the determination of carrier phase weighting coefficients for minimizing composite phase variation. Differential OMEGA error analysis is presented for receiver separations. Three frequency analysis includes LOP error and position error based on three and four OMEGA transmissions. Results of phase amplitude correlation studies are presented.
