Abstract
The Ocean Acoustics Group at the Defence Research Establishment Pacific (DREP) has a requirement for accurate ship-to-ship and global navigation. This navigation project arose from this need. The report describes the overall system operation, the hardware installation and detailed program documentation. A simple-multi-tasking program on two HP200-series computers uses two multi-chain Loran-C receivers and a data link to calculate and record range and bearing between the two ships in real time. Essential to the system is a custom multiple-input serial card, based on Z80 central processing unit (CPU), designed specifically for the project.
