LORAN A GROUNDWAVE PULSE PROPAGATION
The Loran A groundwave radio navigation pulse is analyzed with a computer simulation of the general pulse propagation theory for linear amplitude systems. The natural perturbations of the propagation medium are introduced into the computer simulation and the limitations imposed by nature on the navigation system are estimated quantitatively. The propagation corrections for the radio navigator's equation are formulated so that the ultimate accuracy of the system (using arithmetical propagation corrections) can be estimated.
