Ground-Based Navigation - Very High Frequency Omni-Directional Range (VOR)

Description

VOR

The Very High Frequency Omni-Directional Range (VOR) is a ground-based electronic system that provides azimuth information for high and low altitude routes and airport approaches.

Objectives

  • Maintain a highly reliable, safe, and efficient ground-based navigation system through relocation or conversion to Doppler configuration of VOR facilities.
  • Relocate VORs as needed.
  • Upgrade conventional VORs as needed.
