The Precise Lightweight GPS Receiver PLGR is the Armys authorized GPS receiver Corps of Engineers personnel can obtain this. The U.S. Army Engineer School requested TEC evaluate the positional accuracies attainable with the PLGR. The evaluation covered four areas real- time absolute, real-time differential, post-processed absolute, and post- processed differential. This paper discusses the techniques used and the accuracies observed. Capabilities, as well as limitations, of the current PLGR will also be discussed.
