INTERNATIONAL OMEGA NAVIGATION SYSTEM. WESTERN PACIFIC OMEGA VALIDATION. VOLUME I
The performance of the Omega system in the Western Pacific region was assessed in terms of coverage and accuracy. The assessment was based on engineering and operational data acquired throughout the area during 1976 and 1977. In addition, areas of potential improvement have been identified and the expected performance with improvements is estimated. A principle result of the coverage analysis was the determination of station pair combinations which provide the best navigation performance over the area. A coverage chart was produced, with a minimum number of areas, depicting the two best station pairs suitable for day and night use.
