Performance of the Miniature Airborne GPS Receiver( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At a fixed, well-surveyed location, position determinations from a MAGR (Miniaturized Airborne Global Positioning System Receiver) averaged over a six-week period were correct to within 0.5 m. However, the standard deviation of an individual position determination was 56 m. Almost 20 percent of the individual position determinations had errors exceeding 20 percent. One in every 300 position determinations had an error exceeding 0.5 km. This anomalously large error distribution tail raises questions about the MAGR's suitability for some Army-critical functions, such as precision guidance
