The observation of large GPS tracking errors in an International Space Station GPS receiver used in Relative GPS guided rendezvous manoeuvres, of the Automated Transfer Vehicle, led to the execution of flight campaigns to quantify and understand the GPS signal reception environment for different Solar Array configurations. The effect of masking caused by the presence of a Soyuz spacecraft in the vicinity of the GPS antenna was investigated and specific analysis of GPS pseudorange outliers was… CONTINUE READING
