6 T GPS Observables Autonomous Position Relative Position What is Measured? Code RangesCarrier Phases

7 T Code Range Results Autonomous Position +/- 100 m (330 ft) error (horizontal) +/- 156 m (515 ft) error (vertical)

8 T Carrier Phase Results Measured Reduced Baseline or Vector (cm precision) Azi = 212 o 42’ ” Dist = m  Ell Ht = m  X = m  Y = m  Z = m OR

13 T Errors Sources in GPS Selective Availability (SA) and Anti-Spoofing (AS) Multipath Ionospheric Noise Human Error

14 T Selective Availability (SA) Clock dither Ephemeris error Anti-Spoofing (AS) Encryption of the P-code signal SA and AS 100 meters ????????

15 T Multipath

16 T Ionospheric Effects Ionosphere < 10 km > 10 km

17 T Human Error

18 T Survey Requirements 10:30 10:35

19 T GPS by Trilateration D Distance D = Speed of Light x Time

20 T Summary There are three segments to GPS. All must be working to use GPS. There are 2 GPS signals, L1 and L2. Code Range measurements result in autonomous positions with several meter precision. Carrier Phase measurements result in relative positions with centimeter precision.

21 T Summary (cont.) GPS results are in reference to an ECEF coordinate system and the WGS-84 ellipsoid. Errors in GPS can be minimized by planning and utilizing proper surveying techniques. At least 4 SVs are required to determine a position or survey with GPS. At least 2 receivers are required to survey with GPS.
