..... indicates the magnetic bearing from the station to the aircraft (the Radial).
...... indicates the distance in nautical miles from the beacon to the aircraft.
...... is the on-board equipment that determines the relative bearing (RB) from the aircraft to the ground beacon or station.
A low or medium frequency radio beacon transmits nondirectional signals whereby the pilot of an aircraft properly equipped can determine bearings and "home" on the station.
For reasons peculiar to military or naval operations (unusual siting conditions, the pitching and rolling of a naval vessel, etc.) the civil VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) system of air navigation was considered unsuitable for military or naval use.
It is designed to provide an approach path for exact alignment and descent of an aircraft on final approach to a runway.(Components: Localizor, Glide Slope, Markers and Approach Lights)
..... signals provide the pilot with course guidance to the runway centerline.
....... is an instrument used for navigation and orientation that shows direction relative to the geographic "cardinal directions", or "points".
.......... is a conventional radar sensor that illuminates a large portion of space with an electromagnetic wave and receives back the reflected waves from targets within that space.
......... an accurate worldwide navigational and surveying facility based on the reception of signals from an array of orbiting satellites.
