LORAN-C: YESTERDAY, TODAY & TOMORROW
The Loran-A system is to be replaced by the Loran-C system in the Coastal Confluence Zone of the United States as the radionavigation system. A brief historical review of the Loran-C system is presented which includes fundamental system concepts and characteristics. Current developments are examined, followed in turn by those which are expected or desired in the future. Time proven, the system is shown to be capable of serving not only the traditional marine navigator, but a host of other applications as well, both inland on the ground and in the air, in many areas of the world.
