AbstractAn analog computer for determination of a radar position from the radar ranges and grid coordinates of two known points is described. The computation is based on the simultaneous solution of two right triangles simulated by precision potentiometers in two Wheatstone bridges, the radar position coordinates being generated when the bridge nulls are found as indicated by two centre-zero meters. Root mean square error of about 6 meters in each radar position coordinate is possible at normal radar ranges of 5000 to 9000 metres.
