Abstract : A Magnavox Global Positioning System (GPS) Z-Set Receiver was obtained on loan from the United States NAVSTAR/GPS Joint Program Office for evaluation. Tests were carried out in an electronically-equipped trailer, on-board a naval research vessel and in a Twin Otter flying laboratory. Data was manually recorded during static positioning tests and waypoint navigation tests. Results indicated a static positioning accuracy consistantly better than 100 feet in both latitude and longitude under 4-satellite availability. (Author)
