ARCTIC ICE NAVIGATION AND TRACKING

A specialized series of eighteen satellite navigation receivers was developed for project AID-JEX, a joint US-Canadian effort to monitor the dynamics of ice in the Beaufort Sea. Eight of these receivers are located in manned ice camps, while the remaining ten are deployed in buoy structures implanted in the ice over a range of several hundred kilometers. In addition to meeting the temperature and electric power constraints for the Arctic environment, the systems use advanced techniques in order to meet the accuracy requirements of the AID-JEX project. These system requirements are described.
