Gee Navigation Equipment

The Gee MKII Indicator unit is mounted on a svivel frame to the left of the Navigators section. It was the first electronic navigation aid used during WWII that enabled the position of an aircraft to be determied even in cloud cover. The Gee receiver (R1355 shown below) was mounted under the navigators bench on the RH side. A simulation circuit used to demonstate the operation of the equipment is contained in the high frequency alternator control unit (now replaced by a static invertor used to power the system) also mounted with the receiver. Technicals details of the operation of Gee can be found on a further page.
