Abstract:

The study involves the investigation of trilateration-ranging and range differencing tracking concepts of determining the precise position of a large number of stationary ground targets. The objective is to provide a detailed tradeoff and performance analysis of the best candidate systems in order to select the most promising approaches for Long Range Position Determining System LRPDS. A number of detailed technical analyses are involved. These include position estimation, error analysis and system performance accuracy, synchronization-acquisition, implementation, system timing considerations, time division multiple access design, system description, data transmission, carrier and code tracking, RF link performance, and jamming performance.
