STATIC EVALUATION OF A NAVSTAR GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM (GPS) (MAGNAVOX Z-SET) RECEIVER, MAY-SEPTEMBER, 1979
The report documents the results of the static testing of a NAVSTAR Global Positioning System (GPS) single channel sequential receiver (Magnavox Z-Set). These tests were performed at the Coast Guard District 11 office in Long Beach, CA from May to September 1979. The objective of these tests was to obtain baseline performance data on the NAVSTAR GPS system in a static environment for later comparison with the results of dynamic testing on board a ship. Results showed that the Z-Set operated reliably and that the accuracy with which the set calculated its three dimensional position equalled or exceeded the accuracy with which it is specified to operate.
