Description: The main goal of the radio navigational aids is to supply the navigator with precise and reliable data about speed, height, position, and other relevant navigational parameters. The techniques of finding these parameters are oft utmost importance to a radio engineer. Moreover, the safety of navigation is ensured by introducing certain special radio aids to detect, for example, an impending thunderstorm. Although this textbook was written for both marine and air navigation, it is of extreme interest to the navigator. The authors have covered a number of the above subject starting from the very fundamentals. A separate chapter deals extensively with antennas for navigational aids. Two chapters have been devoted to direction finding principles, homing systems, and ILS. Hyperbolic navigation systems including Omega systems have been described in detail in another chapter. Principles of radar and radar systems have been covered very well in several chapters. Radar target characteristics have been adequately described. The topic of radar clutter will be very useful in understanding of the various responsible for this phenomenon. This book can serve the purpose of professionals in the field to a greater extent. Review questions and multiple choice questions and answers have been added in the appendices as an aid to mastering the topics in the text.
