In the latest “believe it or not”, the USCG, after killing LORAN and eLORAN, now seeks to enter into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with UrsaNav, Inc. to research, evaluate, and document at least one alternative to the Global Positioning System (GPS) as a means of providing precise time.
The Coast Guard seeks public comment on the proposed CRADA and invites others with alternative proposals to make submissions. Comments and proposals should be submitted by February 10. 77 Fed. Reg. 1708 (January 11, 2012).
