It is shown that a satellite Doppler navigation system can provide navigation to at least one-half mile accuracy from a single pass of a satellite, provided that proper use is made of the full Doppler curve. While not extensively discussed, a satellite Doppler navigation system is presented which conveniently provides navigators with all necessary inputs for position calculation, including up-to-date orbital data. The main body of the paper presents the results of a comprehensive error analysis which proves the feasibility of achieving navigational accuracies of one-half mile using such a system under realistic conditions.
