Abstract:

INVESTIGATIONS WERE MADE TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE Loran C service would be a valuable asset to oceanographic problems. A workable interim system of Loran C reception was provided within a limited operating area. It has the capability of providing an increased accuracy of position determination over existing methods, with certain restrictions imposed by simplification of the analyzing equipment. The model discussed has no provisions for eliminating cycle ambiguity amounting to 10 microsecond increments. It is hoped that this ambiguity can be resolved in future models. Plans are discussed to improve the signal to noise ratio by utilizing more of the pulse train transmitted by the stations. Author
