This report presents the results of a study conducted to determine the application of the Global Positioning System (GPS) to the AEROSAT Test and Evaluation Program. A summary of the GPS program elements, signal structure, navigation technque, and receiver operation is given. Operational concepts and representative options are presented whichg use GPS in conjunction with AEROSAT to provide a surveillance function for oceanic air traffic control.
