JOINT SOVIET/AMERICAN LORAN OPERATIONS, THE BERING SEA CHAIN

On 28 April 1988, the U.S. Coast Guard negotiated a proposal with the Soviet Union for implementing a mixed Loran-C/Chayka chain in the North Pacific. This paper discusss the similarities and differences of the U.S. Loran-C and USSR Chayka systems, and describes the design agreed upon for a Bering Sea Chain. Implementation would close a 500-mile-wide coverage gap that exists in the North Pacific.
