Sonobuoy location.

By Thomas Penn Jr. French

Abstract

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimitedIn airborne Anti-Submarine Warfare operations there is a critical requirement for maintaining an accurate relative plot of the sonobuoys with respect to the aircraft. This study proposed a method for locating sonobuoys in a pattern using aircraft-to-buoy slant range information. The method did not use triangulation procedures and attempted to minimize the restrictions placed on the aircraft. The study showed the feasibility of the proposed methodology and the approximate errors to be encountered.http://archive.org/details/sonobuoylocation00frenLieutenant Commander, United States Nav
