The basic operation principle of the TACAN navigation system on the Space Shuttle is described. An issue of interest to NASA engineers is the effect of the loss of the blanking pulse in the system. A simplified operation model of the shuttle TACAN receiver is presented. The effect is analyzed from the interference point of view in case of blanking pulse loss.<>
