The Air Research and Develop-, ment^Command actually disclosed' the details of six Doppler Radarj self-contained aircraft navigation i sjfi&tem's. At the same time, it told: ab'but'an airborne north-seeking gyro compass which is the principal component of the systems. I "So accurate is the Doppler navigation system that after a liPpO-mile flight, an aircraft will arrive within a circle 12 miles in cfttmeter around the destination," the ARDC said. The systems hav e been and are being built now, ARDC added, and '••are the result of a project started "in 1945 at its Wright Air Development Command in Dayton, Ohio. - The six systems described range from a compact unit weighing j only 110 pounds to a giant of 725; pounds which takes up 27.5 cubic ""feet of space. They have been de•"signed for use in virtually any Air 'Tfrrce plane, from helicopters to ' the biggest bombers. The Doppler Radar systems use a principle discovered in 1842 by the Austrian physicist Christian Doppler. Signals arc beamed to the r "gfound, where they bounce or echo '"ba'ck to the airplane and are ,,,'Vpftjked up by a receiver. The dif, fej;etice .in frequencies between the original signal and its received ^ measured by precise computation within the radar set, the ground speed is determined and presented on a dial. When two beams are used, ' Angled forward, to the right and left of the plane, the readings are 1 Compared automatically and give /not only .the plane's true speed "ovV the ground but show wind 'drift — the sideward slippage of the plane from action of the wind. In some systems, four beams are used, angled in the form of ah' "X" forward and backward. -Added to thlg basic Doppler Radar are two other pieces of equipment "—a heading reference or compass i * Shfl a' computer. A navigator has only to put into! .the computer the latitude and longitude of the plane at the start J , of the flight and the same informa-j ..JJon for the destination. | :•* Once the plan e is airborne, the! computer takes the information) University of Kansas Extension MRS.
