    The points a and b represent two of the GPS satellites at a precise instant of time and point X represents the position of the GPS antenna at that same precise moment. The second that it takes for the signals from the satellites to reach the receiver is compensated for in the design of the system. equatorial scintillation can represent a problem in the availability and precision of the Global Positioning System (GPS). This work is concerned with evaluating the impact of equatorial scintillation on the performance of GPS receivers. First, the morphology and statistical model of equatorial scintillation is briefly presented. A numerical Cited by: 4. The tightly coupled (TC) integration scheme uses a single EKF to integrate the GPS and IMU measurements. In the TC integration scheme, the GPS pseudo-range, Doppler signal, and carrier-phase measurements are processed directly in the main EKF, as shown in Figure primary advantage of this architecture is that the raw GPS measurements can be used to update the INS when fewer than Cited by:   Portable GPS for speed and altitude measurements I friend of mine showed me his Garmin Forerunner that he has been using to measure speed in his planes. I'm apparently behind the technology because that seemed like a really good idea to me and I've never seen those before.

Get this from a library. Performance assessment of two GPS receivers on space shuttle. [Christine A Schroeder; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.]. Performance Assessment File (PAF) Data.

The PAF data is created by gathering the truth ephemeris and clock information (3 format) for a given day and differencing that data from the propagated broadcast ephemeris and clock information provided in the RINEX navigation file for the same day.

From the first flight of a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver on Landsat-4, GNSS receivers have evolved into indispensable and ubiquitous tools for navigation and control of space vehicles. Inthe Space Shuttle Program selected an off-the-shelf Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver to eventually replace the three Tactical Air Navigation units on each space shuttle orbiter.

A proven, large production base GPS receiver was believed to be the key to reducing integration, certification, and maintenance costs. The U.S. government is committed to providing GPS to the civilian community at the performance levels specified in the GPS Standard Positioning Service (SPS) Performance Standard (PS).

The following study, commissioned by the Air Force, concludes that, "All the SPS PS assertions examined in the report were met in ". future geodetic satellite missions using GPS for navigation, timing, and POD can employ the same tests for pre-launch performance assessment of their particular receiver.

INTRODUCTION Geodetic space missions such as VCL and ICESat place stringent demands upon the use of GPS receivers for navigation, timing, and precise orbit determination.

using three GPS receivers in place of three legacy TACAN units. Space Shuttle entry navigation performance has been excellent since the first shuttle mission in However, in the planned phase-out of TACAN in favor of GPS starting in the year motivated the Shuttle Program to select a GPS receiver for TACAN replacement.

The shuttle. satellite missions using GPS for navigation, timing, and POD can employ the same tests for pre-launch performance assessment of their particular receiver.

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is revolutionizing and revitalizing the way nations operate in space, from guidance systems for crewed vehicles to the management, tracking, and control of communication satellite constellations, to monitoring the Earth from space.

Benefits of using GPS include: Jason-1 Ocean Surface Topography Mission. GPS signal-carrier measurements, which can be used to compute the attitude of the spacecraft in real time. Accuracy is mainly limited (° rms) by the effect of multi-paths on the spacecraft structure.

Oria, Paul Guckian, Truong X. Nguyen. GPS was originally designed as a PVT utility for land, maritime, and air applications. Although not specifically designed to provide services to space users, spaceborne applications of GPS were envisioned early in the development stages of the NAVSTAR GPS.

Early papers in the mid to late s examined using GPS for Space Shuttle navigation [3. In order to compare and assess the performance of the Single Baseline RTK and Network RTK, test measurements were carried out in City of Çorum district, Turkey on May (GPS Day of Year and ).

As stated in previous chapter, Single Baseline RTK is affected by the distance dependent errors/5(4). Inthe Space Shuttle Program selected an off-the-shelf Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver to eventually replace the three Tactical Air Navigation units on each space shuttle orbiter.

A proven, large production base GPS receiver was believed to be the key to reducing integration, certification, and maintenance by: GPS Receiver Accuracy The accuracy of the LeadTek GPS receiver as advertised as ± 5 meters.

An investigation to assess this claim was conducted in El Cerrito, California on Ap As can be seen by the figures below, the receiver ranges from being very accurate to very inaccurate.

In addition to the so-called user segment made up of the GPS receivers and people who use them to measure positions, the system consists of two other components: a space segment and a control segment.

It took about $10 billion to build over 16 years. This report provides a detailed performance analysis of three semicodeless dual-frequency GPS receivers for use in low Earth orbit (LEO).

Fig. 1) based on a harmonized set of signal simulator tests. Key parameters of the three employed receivers are summarized in Table 1. Following a gen. The tracking performance of the GPS receivers is highly degraded when the received signal is affected by multipath propagation.

A large number of studies on the effect of multipath on the code and phase tracking errors were carried out, as summarized in [Braasch, ].

DLR German Space Operations Center Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany The use of spaceborne Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers has increased as space mission designers seek to obtain high quality navigation and science data.

Receiver selection is often complicated, however, by specific mission requirements and non-uniform manufacturer testing. In addition to the so-called user segment made up of the GPS receivers and people who use them to measure positions, the system consists of two other components: a space segment and a control segment.

It took about $10 billion to build over 16 : David DiBiase. difference between receivers using the same antenna is less noisy than that using two different antennas, at an averaging time of less than hour.

This indicates that the antenna and antenna cable contribute to the supershort- -term noise of GPS carrier-phase time transfer significantly. SpaceNav is a GPS receiver for satellite applications. It is a fully dual-redundant, radiation-tolerant, channel L1 C/A code receiver.

The system provides precise orbit determination and timing for low-earth-orbit satellites and host vehicles. The tracking performance of the GPS receivers is highly degraded when the received signal is affected by multipath propagation.
