Abstract : This report describes ground tests of the Global Positioning System (GPS) in the terminal area at the Atlantic City International Airport. The purpose of the Runway Incursion Program is to investigate the application of GPS as a navigation aid to allow the pilot to safely traverse airport taxiways and runways under poor visibility conditions. The primary objective of the tests was to resolve the critical issue of differential GPS accuracy as a function of the differential update rate.
