Single-epoch estimates of position using GPS are improved by removing multipath signals, which repeat when the GPS constellation does. We present two programs for finding this repeat time, one using the orbital period and the other the topocentric positions of the satellites. Both methods show that the repeat time is variable across the constellation, at the few-second level for most satellites, but with a few showing much different values. The repeat time for topocentric positions, which we… 
MULTIPATH REDUCTION ON REPETITION IN TIME SERIES FROM THE PERMANENT GPS PHASE RESIDUALS
In this research, the newly developed Hilbert Huang Transformation method is applied to decompose the time-shifted post-fit GPS phase signal residuals into a range of fluctuating components from
Modified Sidereal Filtering – Tool for the Analysis of High-Rate GPS Coordinate Time Series
In the error budget of high-rate GPS coordinate time series the geometry satellite – antenna plays a significant role, by means of which the repeat time interval of the identical configuration of GPS

Comparison of Satellite Repeat Shift Time for GPS, BDS, and Galileo Navigation Systems by Three Methods
TLDR
Three methods used for calculating the repeat shift time are presented, and used to compare and analyze the three global systems in depth, named the broadcast ephemeris method (BEM), correlation coefficient method (CCM), and aspect repeat time method (ARTM).
Effectiveness of observation-domain sidereal filtering for GPS precise point positioning
TLDR
An observation-domain sidereal filter algorithm that operates on undifferenced ionospheric-free GPS carrier phase measurements to reduce errors caused by multipath, and is shown overall to yield a position time series 5–10 % more stable, in terms of Allan deviation, than a PDSF over nearly all time intervals below about 200 s in length.
Comparison of Three Methods for Estimating GPS Multipath Repeat Time
TLDR
The best MRT estimation method for practical applications depends on which criterion overweighs the others, and the RCM shows a slight advantage in multipath mitigation, while ORTM is the one of lowest computation and ARTA is the optimal one for real-time ASF.
Day-to-Day Repeatability of the Navigation Solution and SNR from the GPS Receiver installed on KSLV-I
TLDR
Analytic result of the multipath effects and day-to-day repeatability of the navigation solution and SNR observed at the launch pad would be used for obtaining more stable performance of the GPS receiver when the satellite launch vehicles are on standby.

TLDR
The GPS orbital repeat period is investigates and determines that it varies for each satellite and differs significantly from the generally assumed sidereal period, which significantly reduces low frequency errors in 1-Hz GPS position estimates.
