    In 1973, the US Department of Defense (DoD) began development of the Navstar global positioning system (GPS) and embarked on a journey that would take radio navigation and positioning to what were then unimagined levels of performance. From its inception, GPS was viewed as a revolutionary technology that would enhance the positioning capability of US and allied military forces throughout the world... View full abstract»

  • Geodetic applications of GPS

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):92 - 110
    Cited by:  Papers (17)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1600 KB)

    The Global Positioning System (GPS) has become a widely used tool in geodetic studies of Earth. We review the principles of the applications of GPS to geodetic problems and discuss its applications to problems of global and regional geodesy. A global network of dual-frequency GPS receivers continuously tracks the GPS satellites and the data are distributed to globally accessible on-line archives w... View full abstract»

    Although originally developed for the military, the Global Positioning System (GPS) has proven invaluable for a multitude of civilian applications. Each application demands specific performance from the GPS receiver and the associated requirements often vary widely. This paper describes the architectures and functions of civilian GPS receivers and then focuses on performance considerations. The fu... View full abstract»

  • Multipath-rejecting GPS antennas

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):86 - 91
    Cited by:  Papers (39)  |  Patents (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (264 KB)

    Multipath interference limits the speed and accuracy of determining position by differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) techniques. A geodetic surveyor for example, requires multipath interference rejection of about 36+20log10sinε dB, where ε is the elevation angle of the satellite being observed. Signal processing in a GPS receiver cannot satisfy this requirement. A rec... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (296 KB)

    The Global Positioning System (GPS) has made navigation systems practical for a number of land-vehicle navigation applications. Today, GPS-based navigation systems can be found in motor vehicles, farming and mining equipment, and a variety of other land-based vehicles (e.g., golf carts and mobile robots). Each of these applications is discussed and the reader is introduced to some of the issues in... View full abstract»

    This paper provides an overview of the next generation of the Global-Positioning System (GPS) space and ground segments as embodied in the GPS Block II follow-on (GPS IIF) program. The GPS IIF program includes the procurement of 33 satellites and the operation and support of the new GPS operational control segment. The program is using the principles of acquisition reform to develop and field a ne... View full abstract»

    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is investigating the feasibility of using the Global Positioning System (GPS), together with local augmentation as the primary navigation system for the Category II and III precision approach of aircraft. This augmented system would be known as a local area augmentation system (LAAS) because it would place subsystems on the ground at or near an airport to ... View full abstract»

    We discuss Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements available for civil use and algorithms for processing them to obtain real-time estimates of position and velocity. The main objective is to characterize the measurements and to demonstrate the levels of performance achievable with a single GPS receiver and with system augmentations which make corrections to the measurements available to the u...

  • GPS: primary tool for time transfer

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):163 - 172

    The Global Positioning System (GPS) is not only a navigation system, it is also a time-transfer system. As a time-transfer system it provides stability very close to one part in ten to the fourteenth over one day (1 ns/day). After a brief introduction to timekeeping terms, this paper reviews the role of GPS in time distribution and clock synchronization. The GPS coarse acquisition (C/A)-code singl... View full abstract»

    A method is presented for coarse attitude determination using the Global Positioning System (GPS) signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) from a single antenna mounted on a near-Earth satellite. It comprises a calibration procedure and a single-point optimal solution for the orientation of the antenna boresight vector. The calibration step creates an empirical mapping of the SNR to the angle between the anten... View full abstract»

    Discusses the Lewis (1962) predictive paper "Wide-band communication into the home" which predicted home communications 50 years ahead. Lewis approached the problem with the discipline and training of a scientist, which conditioned him to shun hyperbole and focus on projections based on established technological trends. He also brought to the task his perspective as the Executive Director of Bell ... View full abstract»
