Italian term or phrase: incroci radiali
It sounds almost like triangulation but I don't think it's it. Here's the phrase:

. A bordo dell'aeroplano, io sapevo a memoria tutte le frequenze radio delle varie radio assistenza a terra, tutte a memoria. Noi facevamo costantemente incroci di radiali per stabilire la nostra posizione.

Thanks,

Explanation:
Hi Peter,
This should point you in the right direction.

Sometimes you may need to identify an intersection of two VOR radials. This may be a point where the airway changes heading, to intercept another airway, a change in minimum altitude for IFR flights, holding point, or a reporting point for ATC. The intersection can be determined by using two VOR radials or sometimes one VOR radial and Distance Measuring Equipment (DME).
