    logo11 Rising from the ashes

    In the May 2015 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Rising from the ashes". In the article, I discuss the recent demise of Loran-C and the current total reliance on satellite navigation systems such as GPS for positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT). The General Lighthouse Authorities of the UK and Ireland, though, have moved ahead with enhanced Loran (eLoran) as an augmentation of and backup for satnav. Now, the United States is exploring development of its own eLoran system, with the Department of Transportation seeking public comment and a bill introduced in Congress providing for such a system. It is too early to say for sure that the eLoran phoenix has risen from the ashes of Loran-C, but there are certainly signs of life.
