is requested regarding implementation of eLoran in the U.S.
in a Federal Register notice posted on March 22, 2015.
"The purpose of this notice is to seek comment from the public and
industry regarding potential plans by the United States Government
to implement an enhanced Long Range Navigation (eLoran) system as a complementary positioning,
navigation, and timing (PNT) capability to the Global Positioning System (GPS).
The positioning, navigation, and timing
performance of eLoran will vary widely
depending on the number of transmitters and monitor sites for corrections
that are implemented.”
Please provide a comment on or before May 22, 2015…
of safety and security are central requirements for an alternative system
designed to provide positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) services
if satellite-based services are unavailable for any reason. Do you
think the eLoran system would maintain enough
PNT capabilities for you in the absence of GPS to warrant equipage?
Would the economic impact of a GPS outage be reduced by eLoran for you?
