A collection of navigation functions written in 'C' relating to the simulation of aircraft navigation equipments and their terrestrial environments. The functions are available in airnav.c which is best viewed in a highlighting editor such as gedit.
The software data structure containing information about the aircraft which relates to its navigation.
The software structure and simulation of the aircraft's terrestrial radio environment.
Computing the signal strength of a given station at the aircraft. This includes
The mathematical simulation of the antenna radiation lobes of various types of navigational aid.
Simulation of the Morse code call sign keying of the radio navigational aids which are currently being received by the aircraft's receivers.
Simulation of the tuning characteristics of the aircraft's continuously tunable LF/MF ADF receivers.
Types of aircraft navigation receivers plus software data structures and procedures to simulate their operation.
Using LF/MF and VHF radio navigation stations as air route way points including the mathematics of course intercepts and the functions which simulate them.
Simulation of the aircraft's linear and rotational position and motion and also its on-board attitude reference systems.
Simulation of the runway landing task and the Instrument Landing System.
Overview and integration of the simulation software.
