CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS IN THE LORAN C SYSTEM

Edward Durbin

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: THE LORAN C NAVIGATION SYSTEM consist of groups of transmitting stations which provide precisely timed r-f pulsed pulses for the establishment of a highly accurate hyperbolic navigation grid. These sharp rising pulses, having a carrier frequency of 100 kc, permit the utilization of the groundwave propagated signals to 1,900 nautical miles seaward and 1,500 nautical miles landward from the latest generation of transmitting stations.
