The Macrometer Model V-1000 is a geodetic positioning instrument that uses the radio signals broadcast by the GPS satellites. The Macrometer is the only GPS user equipment commercially available that does not require any of the GPS codes. The Model V-1000 receives only the 19-cm wavelength signals from GPS although similar instruments, built for the U.S. Air Force Geophysics Laboratory, receive both the 19-and the 24-cm wavelengths. In this paper we summarize the results of two years of field… 
Centimeter‐level baseline estimation with GPS interferometry
Abstract The NAVSTAR Global Positioning System can provide geodetic point positioning at the 5 m to 10 m level with a single day of observations using either the Doppler or pseudorange modes. This
Advances in Global Positioning System Technology for Geodynamics Investigations: 1978–1992
Over the last decade, users of the Global Positioning System (GPS) have developed the technology capable of meeting the stringent requirements to study geodynamics signals. Positioning precision is
Establishment of three-dimensional geodetic control by interferometry with the global positioning system
We consider the theoretical and the practical aspects of using radiointerferometric observations of the Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites to establish a three-dimensional, multistation,
The dynamics of global positioning system orbits and the determination of precise ephemerides
Analytical orbit perturbation theory suggests that the errors in the ephemerides of the Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites should be mostly resonant effects that can be corrected by adjusting
Surveying and Geodesy in Australia with GPS
Abstract The Global Positioning System (GPS) is an all weather, high accuracy satellite positioning system that will drastically change the way in which many surveying tasks are presently carried
Ephemeris errors of GPS satellites
Ephemeris errors are supposed to be a major factor limiting the usefulness ofGPS in high precision geodesy. Considerations of orbital mechanics suggest that, regardless of their complexity, the
Two kinematic surveys were performed, using TI-4100s, which substantiate the author's earlier claim that centimeter-accuracy relative surveys can be accomplished within seconds. The first test was
A Comparison of Four Precise Global Positioning System Geodetic Receivers
Four precise global positioning system (GPS) geodetic receivers were operated simultaneously in January and February 1984 over ten baselines ranging in distance from 13 to 1304 km. Several of the
Relative Static Positioning with the Global Positioning System: Basic Technical Considerations
An overview of some of the important everyday-problems of using the Global Positioning System for relative positioning in networks of small to medium size and the state of the art of combining receivers of different type is addressed.
Global positioning system carrier phase: Description and use
An approach to dynamic relative positioning using triple differences is presented and should lend itself to performing centimeter accuracy relative surveys in seconds rather than hours.


A review of geodetic and geodynamic satellite Doppler positioning
Since 1967, when the U.S. Navy Navigation System was released to the general public, the accuracy of geodetic and geodynamic satellite Doppler positioning using satellite Doppler has improved
Centimeter-Level Relative Positioning with GPS
Although the Global Positioning System (GPS) was designed primarily for real-time navigation and positioning applications at the dekameter (10-meter, or 33-foot) level of accuracy, the GPS has been
Using the Global Positioning System (GPS) for geodetic positioning
The development of relatively inexpensive satellite receivers in the early 1970's has resulted in cost-effective applications of satellites for a variety of geodetic surveying needs. Currently
Geodetic positioning using a global positioning system of satellites
Geodetic positioning using range, integrated Doppler, and interferometric observations from a constellation of twenty-four Global Positioning System satellites is analyzed. A summary of the proposals
Initial relative positioning results using the global positioning system
The National Geodetic Survey has procured two MacrometersTM and is also a participant in the development of the Texas Instruments' TI4100 and numerical intercomparisons of several base line solutions are given.
Satellite emission radio interferometric earth surveying series—GPS geodetic system
A great reduction in telecommunications sophistication is possible which will result in an order of magnitude less cost for a SERIES GPS station compared to a quasar based mobile VLBI system.
Miniature Interferometer Terminals for Earth Surveying: Ambiguity And Multipath with Global Positioning System
For short-baseline interferometric observations of GPS this method yields correct ambiguity resolution despite severe multipath interference and significant sky blockage, even when instability of the frequency standards governing the separate receiving terminals limits the time span of coherent integration to five minutes.
