The paper addresses the problem of required positioning accuracy to be provided for a marine consumer. To improve the reliability of navigation measurements, an option of system implementation comprising both stationary onshore facilities and mobile offshore ones is proposed. In order to ensure appropriate range and accuracy of navigation using surface radio navigation aids (RNA), it is proposed to employ medium-wave radiation. Specific features of navigation measures within the selected range are studied in detail, which made it possible for the authors to develop particular technical recommendations and to formulate the accuracy estimations of marine consumer positioning using the proposed solutions under different conditions.
