Abstract:

A Loran-C envelope matching receiver Edo Model 600T was evaluated as a potential replacement for Loran-A. The unit was installed on a Pan American 707 aircraft and data were collected primarily on North Atlantic routes. Results of this program indicate that where Loran-C coverage exists in adequate availability and geometry it may be considered a conditionally acceptable substitute for Loran-A as a pilot-operated updating reference for Doppler navigation systems on oceanic air routes.
