Abstract:

The report is intended to identify and evaluate some of the factors affecting the Global Positioning System navigation performance for the satellite configurations, as well as system design issues related to the orbital geometry. The report addresses the user visibility, ground station visibility, satellite- induced. Doppler, geometric dilution of precision, selection of satellites for optimum navigation conditions, and satellite eclipses. The levels of nominal geometric performance which can be achieved are established.
