Ionospheric delay

The ionosphere is a region of ionized gases.

The state of the ionosphere
p is determined
primarily by the intensity of the solar activity.

The speed of propagation of radio signals in

The ionosphere depends on the number of
free electron in the path of a signal, defined as
the total electron content (TEC): the number
off electrons in a tube off 1 m2 cross section
extending from the receiver to the satellite.

The increased path length is accounted for in terms of a multiplier

of the zenith delay. The multiplier is called Obliquity Factor.

MeasurementErrors

The code and carrier measurements are affected by

random measurement noise, called receiver noise. It
depends on the signal strength.

MeasurementErrors

Multipath refers to the phenomenon of a signal

reaching an antenna via two or more paths.
The range measurement error due to multipath
depends on the strength of the reflected signal and
the delay between direct and reflected signals.

SBAS

Without the installation of the reference stations, you can use correction data
through the SBAS satellite such as MTSAT in Japan. Under quiet
ionospheric condition,
condition the performance is generally good within 1-2 m .

Sampling Frequency is 16.36776MHz

It means that the number of sampling is 16367 in every 1ms.
GPS L1 C/A code repeats every 1ms.
Finally, we can synchronize the code timing in tracking.

If you use carrier phase to smooth pseudo-range, accuracy can be

improved dramatically. The power of DGPS is to reduce bias.
