Abstract : Results of the positioning of the Trident II Launch Pad 46A from GPS tracking data are presented. For 3 days, data were collected with the Texas Instruments 4100 Geodetic Receiver(TIGER) System, and the position of Theodolite Pedestal 187.5 was determined for each of the 3 days of tracking by using post-fit GPS ephemerides. The position solutions differed from the Defense Mapping Agency (DMA) land survey position by 1.3, 1.3, and 1.9 meters root sum squared (RSS) for 16, 17, and 18 June 1986, respectively. Keywords: Doppler data; GESAR software.
