Abstract: As a result of the growing popularity and utility of GPS, advances in Loran technology and system performance have not been well publicized. Recently it has become clear that neither the United States nor the international community will adopt a sole-means GPS system. Consequently, systems that can complement GPS are being rigorously evaluated. Because of its dissimilar physical properties, multimodal applications, and technical advances, Loran is uniquely suited to complement GPS. This paper documents some of the potential benefits of hybridized GPS - Loran receivers with performance far exceeding that of either individual system.
