On Terms and Definitions in Radio Navigation

  • A. A. Povalyaev
Theory and Methods of Signal Processing


The modern educational and scientific publications devoted to describing the principles of operation of radio-navigation systems are analyzed. As a result, contradictions in the used paradigm have been revealed. The new paradigm based on the definition of the timescale concept and eliminating the ascertained contradictions is introduced.
