You should find and read J.A.Pierce's book in the radiation lab series,
it explains how all the WWII systems works, then read his memoir (it
used to be on the web), that explains (lightly) Omega, Loran-A..C

It was news to me that a LORAN-D was ever worked on, but Dave Mills
thesis may also have been the only work ever done on it.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
