The Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS), an integrated communication, navigation, and identification system, provides a solution to the critical data registration problem facing the joint US military services today, namely, the establishment, in real-time, of accurately correlated positions and tracks for all friendly, unknown, and hostile targets in an operational area, thus providing the total situation awareness required for tactical and C/sup 2/ operations. The fundamental relationships of JTIDS navigation and the error analysis for target registration and target hand-off in both geodetic and relative grid coordinates are presented. Simulation results are provided for two scenarios to demonstrate the level of improvement that JTIDS navigation can have on situation awareness, target acquisition, and weapon delivery. Specifically, it is shown that accurate data registration can be achieved by as few as two JTIDS members, with or without accurate knowledge of geodetic position.<>
