Abstract: The concept validation phase (PhaseI)of the Navstar GPS program will evaluate the performance of User receiving equipment and the Control Segment. The purpose of this paper is to describe how the Control Segment supports the User test program, and how Control Segment prediction errors in satellite ephemerides and atomic frequency standard behavior are propagated into User error. A summary of projected performance is also presented based on simulation results.
