The effect of antenna performance on the carrier phase measurement accuracy is described. The antenna performance characteristics in the presence of multipath are analyzed in terms of an antenna Axial Ratio and an antenna Noise Figure. In this analysis, the multipath is assumed to originate from a single point located on a perfectly conducting ground. The analysis focuses on the carrier phase sensitivity with respect to various parameters such as antenna Axial Ratio, Noise Figure, ground… 
GPS code phase variations (CPV) for GNSS receiver antennas and their effect on geodetic parameters and ambiguity resolution
Precise navigation and geodetic coordinate determination rely on accurate GNSS signal reception. Thus, the receiver antenna properties play a crucial role in the GNSS error budget. For carrier phase
