Abstract:

The NAVSTAR Global Positioning System GPS can be used for geodetic applications. The NAVSTAR Geodetic Receiver System NGRS has been developed to demonstrate this capability. A brief description of the NGRS hardware is presented along with the formulation that converts the observations of satellite Doppler frequency to range differences. The sensitivity of the range differences to random error sources is also discussed. Author
