Abstract: The electronic long-range navigational aid Loran was developed for our government to meet a military need during World War II. Because of the great utility value of Loran in time of peace, the Chief of Naval Operations has very wisely permitted the use of the system by private and commercial ships and planes. Loran has reached a state of maturity where many shipping and overseas air-transport companies now regard it as a necessary adjunct to their navigational equipment.
