TERMINATION OF LORAN-A. AN EVALUATION OF ALTERNATIVE POLICIES

The objectives of this study were to identify the problems for U.S. civilian mariners associated with termination of Loran-A service, to measure and evaluate the benefits and costs of possible Coast Guard actions to lessen the adverse impact of termination, and to recommend (1) those Coast Guard actions that would minimize the private costs to Loran-A users of termination and (2) those actions that would maximize the net social benefits from the termination of Loran-A and conversion to Loran-C. The problems involved with termination and conversion have been identified and described. This report presents the conceptual approach used to measure and evaluate the effects of alternative Coast Guard actions to reduce the private costs and increase the social benefits of Loran-A termination.
