This report provides an overview of Navstar (Global Positioning System (GPD) operation and develops the demonstration objectives and data requirements for the at-sea demonstration of z-set. It develops the rationale and illustrates the engineering analyses that went into the suggested z-set hardware changes and demonstration software requirements. This report also defines the z-set error sources, describes the ship simulation used to predict z-set performance, and discusses the simulation results. It includes recommendations for the demonstration configuration and identifies a potential GPS impact on marine systems of the 1980's as an area for future investigation. (Author)
