Abstract : This conference presented current and future commercial and military uses and technology of Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Differential Global Positioning Systems (DGPS). Test results of new methods and equipment were detailed. A Russian system, Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS), was discussed in several of the conference sessions. Topics included the following: (1) Air traffic control; (2) Airborne instrumentation applications; (3) Phase ambiguity resolution; (4) Attitude determination; (5) Spacecraft orbits; (6) Earth tides; (7) Airport operational requirements; (8) Underwater acoustics; (9) Ionospheric disturbances; (10) Satellite tracking systems; (11) Gravimetry, Surveying, and Geodesy; (12) Integrated systems; (13) Navigational aids; (14) Inertial navigation; (15) Attitude indicators, (16) Artificial intelligence; (17) Ground vehicle applications; (18) Mapping; (19) Wide area augmentation system; (20) Earth atmosphere; (21) Maritime applications; (22) Nuclear radiation detection; (23) Satellite antennas; (24) Multipath effects and reduction; (25) Power reduction in GPS receivers; (26) Precision aircraft landing; (27) Space systems and applications; (28) Fuzzy logic; (29) Test and evaluation methods; and (30) Algorithms and computer programming
