    The nature of Doppler velocity measurement is reviewed briefly. This is followed by a discussion of the basic requirements for obtaining a usable signal for practical systems, which include achieving requisite coherence, fulfilling certain signal-to-noise criteria, and maintaining known functional relationships between measured Doppler frequencies and aircraft velocity. Then, those factors peculia... View full abstract»

    Some of the considerations involved in the design of the Automatic Navigator, AN/APN-67, are presented along with a description and photographs of the equipment design selected. Characteristics of the Doppler signal are also described. The microwave part of the system utilizes two continuous-wave pencil beams generated by a klystron transmitter and a single fixed mounted, space duplexed antenna wi... View full abstract»

    The AN/APN-81 is a self-contained Doppler navigation system which accurately determines ground speed and drift angle independently of ground aids. This paper explains the techniques employed in the measurement of ground speed and drift angle. The beam pattern is described and major system parameters are given. In block diagram form, the functions of the transmitter and receiver, the frequency trac... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the AN/ASN-9¿a miniaturized, dead-reckoning navigational computer. The design premises which allow its size reduction are explained; problem solution equations are given; and system functional diagrams are presented. Some of the techniques employed in achieving its small size are described, as are certain areas of its application. View full abstract»

    Radio and radar techniques will aid future space travelers in at least three major fields: navigation, communications, and collision warning. In space the basic limitation to any navigational or communications system is the achievable range. Presentday techniques are capable of providing point-to-point beamed coverage of the entire solar system, but they are inadequate for omnidirectional coverage... View full abstract»
