  3. GPS Overview • 24+ Satellites • 12 Hour Orbits • 6 Orbital Planes • 1 Way Ranging • Atomic Clocks • Spread Spectrum • Global 3D Positioning • <100 m Horiz. • Requires at Least 4 Satellites in View • Declared Fully Operational in July 1995 • Operated by U.S. Air Force in Colorado Springs, CO

  4. Why Augmentation? • Current GPS and GLONASS Constellations Cannot Support Requirements For All Phases of Flight • Integrity is Not Guaranteed • All satellites are not monitored at all times • Time-to-alarm is from minutes to hours • No indication of quality of service • Accuracy is Not Sufficient • Even with SA off, vertical accuracy > 10 m • Availability and Continuity Must Meet Requirements

  22. Technical Challenges and Opportunities • Ionosphere Spatial Decorrelation • Rare ionosphere storms can create regions of unusual spatial decorrelation • Mitigated by WAAS and LAAS monitoring, but observability cannot be guaranteed • JPALS mitigates with dual-frequency removal of ionosphere measurement effects • Rare-Event Error Bounding • “Tails” of GNSS error distributions are fatter than predicted by Gaussian • Insufficient data exists to ID tail distributions • Exploiting GPS and GNSS Modernization • Signal and integrity enhancements in GPS III • Galileo ranging satellite constellation • 2nd civil frequency (GPS L5 / Galileo E5)
