MEASUREMENT OF DGPS IN THE GULF OF NAPLES

Global positioning systems (GPS) have revolutionised global positioning techniques. However, due to US national security concerns, larger errors have been placed on the GPS system, thus limiting the accuracy obtainable from civilian users to 100m (95%). For some application areas, such as harbours and harbour approaches navigation, surveys etc, which require more accuracy, the GPS cannot meet the requirement. This prompted the development of differential satellites navigation techniques. This paper describes a DGPS system and results of measurements carried out in the Gulf of Naples.
