eLoran, a proven positioning and timing back-up for GPS

Last April the enhanced Loran technique was successfully demonstrated at the New York Stock Exchange.

It is not common knowledge that next to positioning, timing is also a crucial part of GPS, and global operations such as financial transactions depend on the timing capabilities of the GPS satellite signal.

Precise and synchronized timing is critical to the financial markets just as positioning and timing is critical for military vessels navigating hostile waters.

Now that eLoran is a proven timing back-up for GPS in the financial sector, more and more industries will recognize the importance of having multiple timing sources.

SkyDec, a world leader in military GPS systems, has seen a growing demand from Naval forces for receivers using eLoran technology, as a back-up positioning and timing solution.

Are you relying purely on satellite signals? Contact SkyDec for details how to equip your navigation system with both a military GPS and Loran-C/eLoran system.

Do you have a back-up if your GPS signal fails?

Over the last few years more and more news items warn us about the vulnerabilities and weaknesses of the GPS / GNSS systems. Recently, there have been renewed reports of GPS jamming from North Korea. What happens if your military navigation system fails due to the loss of a GPS signal?

An old technology has the answer. The Loran-C (long range navigation system) was originally developed during WOII. Today the USA, Russia and Asian governments are investing in the technology because it is very difficult to disrupt. The eLoran receiver is a modern and advanced version that is a reliable back-up in event of jamming.

SkyDec, a world leader in military GPS systems, has seen a growing demand for eLoran receivers for naval forces around the world. When installed it automatically switches navigation to the land based eLoran signal if the GPS signal is jammed, spoofed or simply not strong enough.

Do you want to make sure that your military navigation system does not purely rely on satellite signals?

SkyDec can interface the eLoran receiver into your existing navigation systems. There is no need to replace legacy equipment. Without interrupting operations SkyDec can have your military navigation system protected against GPS jamming and futureproof.

CB90 – Royal Norwegian Navy

About Project

SkyDec 07SERIES at the CB90 of the Royal Norwegian Navy. The CB90 is an exceptionally fast and agile boat that can execute extremely sharp turns at high speed, decelerate from top speed to a full stop in 2.5 boat lengths, and adjust both its pitch and roll angle while under way. Its light weight, shallow draught, and twin water jets allow it to operate at speeds of up to 40 knots (74 km/h) in shallow coastal waters. The water jets are partially ducted, which, along with underwater control surfaces similar to a submarine’s diving planes, gives the CB90 its maneuverability. The SkyDec NGNS07 was selected because of its small form-factor and high robustness.

About Project

The Type 45 destroyer, also known as the D or Daring class, is a class of six guided-missile destroyers built for the United Kingdom’s Royal Navy in the early 21st century.
The class is primarily designed for anti-aircraft and anti-missile warfare. The first three destroyers were assembled by BAE Systems Surface Fleet Solutions from partially prefabricated “blocks” built at different shipyards; the remaining three were built by BAE Systems Maritime – Naval Ships.
The first ship in the Daring class, HMS Daring, was launched on 1 February 2006 and commissioned on 23 July 2009.
