The document recommended approval of the Department of Transportation proposal that radionavigation system planning by the United States for its maritime region consist of Loran-C to meet the precision needs of civil users in the Coastal Confluence Zone (CCZ), and OMEGA to provide the worldwide enroute general purpose use.
