AIRCRAFT NAVIGATION WITH THE LIMITED OPERATIONAL PHASE OF THE NAVSTAR GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM

In 1980, the NAVSTAR Global Positioning System (GPS) will be in the limited operational phase. During this phase, a GPS user will not generally be able to determine his position using satellite measurements only. This paper describes the simulation of an aircraft navigation technique which uses the limited operational phase GPS and barometric altimeter measurements.
