HIGH ACCURACY COMMERCIAL SATELLITE NAVIGATION SYSTEM

A privately owned and operated positioning-fixing system, STARFIX, is described. The system became operational in 1986. It is available 24 hours a day, encompassing the continental U.S. and up to 500 miles offshore with a 5 meter 2DRMS accuracy, or better. This paper describes the operation of the STARFIX system and supplies comparisons of STARFIX-Differential GPS to demonstrate the long-term stability and STARFIX-Syledis for the short-term stability.
