LORAN-C FEASIBILITY DEMONSTRATION PLAN
The report sets forth the following objectives of demonstrating terrestrial applications of LORAN-C, a radio navigation system, operated and maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard to determine the: (a) need for and costs of calibrating and of converting LORAN-C time difference values to other site location forms; (b) control display requirements as a function of system application; (c) costs and problems involved in training users; (d) steps required to implement a LORAN-C system in each of the application areas; (e) operational difficulties and to (f) document costs of implementation of a LORAN-C system. The report details demonstration scope, fiscal, temporal, evaluative criteria, and manpower requirements. Applications to be demonstrated are among those detailed in preceding report under this contract entitled, 'LORAN-C Conceptual Analysis.' Applications are distributed in three major categories: Automatic Vehicle Monitoring (AMV), Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) or Dispatch, and Site Registration.
