The Coast Guard is investigating alternative means to augment the existing vessel traffic monitoring carried out by its Vessel Traffic Service Centers. One alternative is to require vessels to transmit their positions to the center in terms of LORAN-C time differences. The time difference are then processed and displayed. The LORAN-C display system LDS is an experimental system designed to test the concept of vessel position monitoring using LORAN-C time differences. This report describes the system, the steps taken to verify proper operation and the results of tests made in San Francisco, CA. Author
