Abstract: The GPS Attitude and Navigation Experiment GANE was performed during U.S. Space Shuttle mission STS-77 in May 1996. The primary purpose of the experiment was to mitigate the technology risk associated with the use of GPS to determine attitude, position, and velocity for the International Space Station ISS. To this end, GANE data were used to assess the performance of GPS-based navigation and attitude, using an antenna configuration and orientation similar to that planned for the ISS. Studies were also performed to verify the technique used to predict ISS GPS phase multipath using the GANE data. This paper summarizes the GANE apparatus, methods, and results of postflight analyses performed at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA Johnson Space Center.
