GPS time is UTC time and I'd assume the same is true for Loran. Both are 
primarily for navigation and so are on Zulu time, which is another name 
for UTC. Zulu is the international radio word for the letter Z.

I've never seen Julian time used outside the world of IBM mainframes. 
I'd be interested to know who else uses it.
