Helicopter operations in offshore areas in instrument weather conditions require an air traffic control system and a navigation capability that will extend to 300 miles from shore, and provide guidance down to 200 ft above sea level. Accuracy and reliability must be at least equal to that available with VOR-DME. The overall offshore situation is described and FAA and industry efforts to meet the helicopter offshore navigation requirements are explained.
