Removal of Limitation of Antijamming Capability for Satellite Navigation System Receivers due to Odd Number of Ranging Code Symbols in Epoch. Y. S. Dubinko, P. I. Maleyev, A. N. Soloshchev Navigation and Hydrography. 2013. No. 35. . 1823.

The method used to remove the antijamming capability limitation of SNS receivers due to odd number of ranging code symbols in epoch because of meander modulation of the receiver input signal (or replica in correlator) is considered. The meander is introduced at the receiver input and, if necessary, can be easily removed by reverse conversion before formation of auto- and cross-correlation functions. Removal of antijamming capability limitations by balancing the code in the receiver allows the practical invulnerability of GLONASS to jamming to be provided.

Key words: receivers of satellite navigation systems, pseudorandom sequence, recurrence period of ranging code (epoch), antijamming capability limitation.

Results of the investigation of the effectiveness of the example of adaptive information-measuring navigation system containing the main and additional means of measurement and the adaptation are presented.

Key words: navigation-hydrographic support, adaptive information-measuring systems, efficiency, performance indicators.

Methodical Aspects of Design Work Intended to Provide the Navigation Safety under the Present-Day Conditions. A. A. Lobanov, Y. V. Rumyantsev, D. M. Bukhov Navigation and Hydrography. 2013. No. 35. . 2938.

The problems connected with design of the shipping routes, taking into account the changes in the interagency sphere of the Russian Federation and IMO requirements to accuracy standards of ship navigation are considered. The legislative and normative documents for designing the shipping routes at the current stage are presented. The methodical schemes for the main design stages and standard composition of the design documents are suggested. The conclusion is drawn about the necessity to develop new documents or to correct the existing ones in the sphere of designing the shipping routes, based on the presented methodical approaches.

Key words: shipping routes, IMO, navigation safety, normative and legislative basis, the guiding documents, analysis, methodical schemes, the International Law of the Sea.

Substantiation of Requirements to Navigation Support for Underway Measurement of Current Velocity by Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler. E. S. Zubchenko Navigation and Hydrography. 2013. No. 35. . 3952

Based on modeling the underway current velocity measurement error by acoustic Doppler current profiler, the necessary measurement accuracy for the vessel¢s angles of motions, course and speed, is evaluated. It is shown that the required accuracy for the vessel¢s absolute speed can be obtained by using the modified algorithm for calculating the speed of an object in SNS receivers. It is based on presenting the difference of consecutively measured carrier phases as an object movement vector, taking the movement of the receiver antenna due to the vessel¢s motions into account.

Key words: error, accuracy, measurement, speed, velocity, satellite navigation system (SNS), receiver, profiler.

On Acceptable Value of Error for the Position of Sounding in the Detailed Survey. N. A. Nesterov Navigation and Hydrography. 2013. No. 35. . 5358.

The necessity to specify the requirements for accuracy of determining the position of sounding when carrying out the engineering explorations in shallow water is shown. The requirements for provision of more exact value of error for the position of sounding depending on its measurement error value are substantiated.

Key words: multi-beam echosounder, error, detailed survey of sea bottom relief, horizontal and vertical uncertainty.

Automated Method of Computing the Lines of Watersheds and Thalwegs. Y. N. Zhukov Navigation and Hydrography. 2013. No. 35. . 5864.

The problem of finding the structural lines of the bottom relief by the depth point data array, using the computer calculations, is considered. It is shown that this problem can be correctly solved based on the combinatorial topology algorithms if the depth data array is presented in the form of the Morse discrete function.

Key words: structural lines of relief, Morse discrete function, separatrix.

Algorithm of Calculating the Phases of Tidal Cycles (Water Clock). Y. N. Zhukov Navigation and Hydrography. 2013. No. 35. . 6469.

The problem of calculating the water clock for the specific point, the Island of Sosnovets, is considered. To solve this problem, the tide prediction by the harmonic constituents followed by the calculation of Gilbert conversion is suggested to be used. The algorithm presented here allows the values of the water clock to be calculated in the mean solar time at an accuracy to one minute.

Key words: water clock, phase of tide, Gilbert conversion.

Situational Approach in the Methodology of Mathematical Modeling of Decision-making in the Interests of Navigation and Hydrographic Support. V. N. Zavgorodny Navigation and Hydrography. 2013. No. 35. . 7074.

An approach to the choice of mathematical criteria based on the classification of information situations that can be useful for a wide range of tasks of navigation and hydrographic support for the naval forces is considered. Partition of information into the classes of situations is carried out according to the degree of uncertainty of information available to the command at the time of the decision-making.

Key words: complex systems, decision support, multi-criteria problems, efficiency criteria.
