A CALIBRATION OF GPS EQUIPMENT AT TIME AND FREQUENCY STANDARDS LABORATORIES IN THE USA AND EUROPE

W. Lewandowski, M. Weiss, D. Davis

Abstract: The method of clock comparisons using GPS satellites in common view is now widely used in the time laboratories which participate in the international unification of time under the coordination of the Bureau International de Poids et Measures (BIPM). We report here the results of a campaign of calibration of time delay in GPS receivers under the auspices of the BIPM with the assistance of the National Bureau of Standards (NBS), Boulder, Co. This trip in the United States and in Europe was performed from the 29 September 1986 to 27 October 1986. The Institutes and Laboratories visited during the trip were: National Bureau of Standards, Boulder, USA Observatoire de Paris, Paris, France Istituto Elettrotecnico Nazionale, Torino, Italy Technical University of Graz, Graz, Austria Institut fur Angewandte Geodasie, Wettzel, Fed. Rep. of Germany Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt, Braunschweig, Fed. Rep. of Germany Van Swinden Laboratory, Delft, Netherlands National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, England United States Naval Observatory, Washington, USA
