A unified data collection and analysis plan to support NAFEC and the FAA in the assessment of Loran-C as either a replacement for or supplement to the current network of VOR/DMEs is presented. This effort focused on four specific areas: Developing mathematical models of temporal variations in Loran-C signal phase and amplitude; Developing data collection procedures to enable an assessment of the accuracy and adequacy of proposed models; Defining a data analysis plan that will enable maximum use of the data collected in identifying parameters of the proposed models and cause and effect relationships of Loran-C temporal variations; and Defining a plan for the design of a data management system for the storage and maintenance of collected data and an efficient interface for the data analysis programs. The plans and models provide the necessary structure for the data collection and analysis effort anticipated to commence early in 1980. Subsequent analysis of the Loran-C data will validate the models and dictate any modifications of the plans.
