Abstract:

At the GPS Master Control Station, range and delta range measurement from remote, unmanned monitor stations are processed to generate satellite navigation messages daily. Data are edited, smoothed, and processed in a Kalman filter to generate estimates of ephermerides and all system clock, solar pressure, polar wander, and tropospheric states. This processing, and some examples of typical performance measures, are described. Author
