Abstract : Translocation, as applied by users of the Navy Navigation Satellite System (NNSS), is a procedure used to position one receiver with respect to another using data acquired simultaneously by both receivers. The translocation process minimizes the effect of system error sources which are highly correlated at both receiver sites. The paper presents test results for an improved class of translocation equipment. Accuracy improvement, by a factor of three, was shown for short distances.
