Bossler, J. Jensen, R. McMaster, and C. ), Chapter 10, Taylor & Francis, New York. 3 should be understood as the best achievable accuracy. 8 GPS Instrumentation Over the past two decades, civilian as well as military GPS instrumentation has evolved through several stages of design and implementation focused primarily on achieving an enhanced reliability of positioning and timing, modularization, and miniaturization. By far, the majority of the receivers manufactured today are of the C/A-code single-frequency type.

The six signals planned for QZSS (L1-C/A, L1C, L2C, L5, L1-SAIF [interoperable with GPS-SBAS], LEX [QZSS Experimental Signal for high precision (3 cm level) service and compatible with Galileo E6 signal) are designed to have compatibility and interoperability with existing and future modernized GNSS signals. India is also developing its own space-based augmentation system (SBAS), known as the GAGAN (GPS Aided Geo Augmented Navigation) system. The project­, which would enhance the accuracy and integrity of GNSS signals to meet precision approach requirements in the civil aviation industry (over Indian airspace), had its first satellite launch in May 2011.

For CoO the location of the reader is described by a cell identified by the maximum read range to a tag. This technique offers relatively low accuracy and depends on the size of the distinguishable cells (10–20 m). A dense configuration of scanners across an area would improve the granularity of positioning but would incur a significantly higher cost. As a result, it is not practical to use RFID for real-time tracking applications over large areas. To improve the achievable positioning the deduction of ranges to the RFID tags from received signal power levels is used (it can be converted to a distance).
