Tactical Air Navigation

</dt>
A two-dimensional navigation system which provides azimuth and distance to a fixed ground station for navigation in piloted aircraft. Distance is determined by pulse interrogation of the ground station with time comparison to the returned pulse. Azimuth is provided by comparison of a continuous-wave audiosignal from pulse amplitudes to reference pulses. </dd>
