As I understand it, Britain was trying to convince others in the EU to continue with eLoran but the French ended the argument by bringing down their eLoran towers with explosives - Britain gave up on the argument and decommissioned their eLoran not long afterwards. The Americans are looking at resurrecting their eLoran system, maybe in response to the recent Russian jamming of GPS during a NATO exercise in Norway. The Russians have a couple of terrestrial alternatives to GNSS, so jamming GPS and Galileo would make sense for their military.
