Attitude Determination via GPS
The principles of attitude determination using the Global Positioning System (GPS) are described. The specific techniques which can be used to resolve the initial carrier phase ambiguities which arise when the antennas are more than one-half wavelength apart are also described. The specific method used by Magnavox to solve the attitude problem is discussed. Finally, sample results obtained from the first prototype Magnavox ADS receiver are presented.
