Integrated eLoran/GPS receivers
Reelektronika has integrated the eLoran positioning with GPS positioning info into a universal eLoran GPS receiver. This integrated receiver, available since 2005 provides reliable postioning information even if GPS is weak or absent or eLoran is weak or absent and in this way providing highest available, reliable positioning. Most notably Reelektronika’s integrated eLoran/GPS technology provides position, time and frequency in GPS hostile environments including dense urban environments and situations where GPS is being (un)intentionally disrupted.
By combining eLoran with GPS, Reelektronika is taking advantage of two federally supported positioning systems. GPS, although accurate, has inherent limitations as a result of its high frequency (1.5 GHz), low power (50 Watts) transmitters, orbiting over 20,000 km above the earths surface. Alternatively, Loran is land based with a low operating frequency (100 kHz) with typical transmitters approaching 1,000,000 Watts. The lower frequency and higher power of Loran allows its signal to penetrate into many areas where GPS does not work.
By taking advantage of the improvements in the Loran system presently being implemented by the U.S. Coast Guard and the Federal Aviation Administration, users can expect accuracy measured in 10’s of meters.
By combining both systems Reelektronika can offer accurate, reliable, position time and frequency with no additional required local infrastructure.
