eLORAN utilizes differential corrections to significantly improve accuracy over the LORAN-C system. Much like Differential GPS/GNSS (DGPS/GNSS), differential monitoring reference stations can be deployed across the nation. These reference stations receive the raw eLORAN signals from the main transmitting towers, detect any deviations and send corrections back to the eLORAN towers. The eLORAN towers then transmit the corrections via the LDC in the main eLORAN signal to all users, substantially improving PNT accuracy.
In addition to improving accuracy, the LDC brings a unique capability to all eLORAN customers: The ability to send one way data communication signals for any customer need. These data commands are able to significantly penetrate buildings, underground, and underwater providing a unique and powerful command and control capability.
