BO: Transport Minister Ketil Solvik-Olsen is open to let private build up a system of civil protection, navigation and timing correction.

As Bladet Vesterålen previously reported, the four Norwegian Loran stations closed down, despite initiatives to modernize stations to ELoran to ensure navigation on terrorism or natural disaster should strike out satnav as GPS. It is also now known that solar storms and terror in seconds can turn undercut navigation, time reference, data infrastructure and thus banking and stock exchange.

But warnings about solar storms with crises as a result have not put the horror of the Minister of Transport Ketil Solvik-Olsen. He regards it as unacceptable to recover some alternative navigation system based on ELoran unless a new round of defense detect needs solsvik-Olsen has not been reported previously.

“We are in constructive dialogue with an English company that will use the infrastructure for Loran C. Unless new information comes to light, we will not tear equipment, if a company will use it for commercial purposes, says solsvik” Olsen. He says that it is scheduled a meeting to discuss this possibility.
