So any ideas on how likely it will be that eLORAN becomes deployed with 
at least partial US coverage within the next 5--10 years?  There exists 
a solid company working on its R&D (UrsaNav), apparently increased 
awareness in government, and UrsaNav entered into a partnership with 
Spectracom for integrating its UN-152B (modern SDR-based eLORAN, 
Loran-C, and Chayka frequency and time transfer receiver) for GNSS 
fallback, which has been tested for commercial applications (e.g., 
NYSE), so apparently there is some commercial demand (I have been told 
by an engineer at Google that they are aware of this for Spanner and 
their other R&D projects requiring time metrology, but have not decided 
yet).
