Charles A. Schue

Charles A. “Chuck” Schue is a globally recognized expert in radio navigation, particularly Loran-C and Enhanced Loran (eLoran). He is a thought leader in the global movement on delivering a co-primary PNT solution for times when GPS/GNSS is not available or not trustworthy. "Building a market” is part of his larger strategic vision to enable an entire ecosystem devoted to ensuring resilient PNT.

Chuck has been involved in every technical advance in Loran-C and eLoran technology since the mid 1970’s. While on active duty in the United States Coast Guard (USCG), he became the first Program Manager for the congressionally mandated Loran Recapitalization Program, a $160M+ effort to modernize and upgrade the North American Loran-C system to eLoran. He was also the first Commanding Officer of the USCG Loran Support Unit (LSU), one of five Coast Guard Centers of Excellence. As the “Chief Loranimal”, Chuck was responsible for all engineering, maintenance, and support of 29 operational Loran transmitting sites, the Loran Support Unit test transmission facility, 30 monitor sites, and six control sites in North America, including connections with Canadian and Russian Loran stations. Additionally, he was the U.S. technical representative for all things Loran to the international community.

As the founder or co-founder of several companies in fields as diverse as medical technology, software product, hardware product, public safety and security, and advanced engineering, Chuck has demonstrated his ability to take an idea and turn it into a successful endeavor. He believes there is power in the right partnerships, in many cases the results of which are a magnification of the strength of individual members.
