Abstract : Coordinate conversion schemes are discussed that are compatible with Loran-C outputs. Three different methods of conversion were investigated. The three proposed methods convert Loran-C hyperbolic time difference information into x-y and/or latitude-longitude coordinates. The proposals employ a coordinate converter, which accepts the Loran-C hyperbolic time difference inputs. (Author)
