Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The U.S. Coast Guard has contracted the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory to develop a low cost Loran C navigation display system, COGLAD, Coast Guard Loran Assistance Device. The system provides helm steering displays, and trackline displays using an ADL-21 receiver and HP 9100 series of desk top calculator devices. This paper describes teh system, its operation, and potential uses within the Coast Guard. The programmable nature of the system makes it highly adaptable to other operational uses. Lieutenant Commander Freese is a graduate of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and the U.S. Naval Post Graduate School. He is presently Chief of the Applications Section, Systems Development Branch of Electronics Engineering at U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters.
