Abstract:

System 621B is a concept for a highly-accurate, satellite-navigation system which enables any number of users anywhere on the globe to determine in real time, their position and velocity in three dimensions. The most important performance parameter of this system is the degree of navigational accuracy which is provided the users. This accuracy and other pertinent performance characteristics depend to a large extent upon the chosen orbit configuration and the resulting geometry between the user and the satellites. However, it has been necessary to evolve user navigation receiver designs capable of performing within the system constraints and which contribute negligibly to the overall system accuracy degradation. It is the purpose of this report to document one such receiver design, designated the MX-450 Navigation Receiver, which was developed to further refine and verify the predicted performance of System 621B.
