Abstract: The continued disruption of GNSS signals in the airspace has highlighted the need for RNP services based on terrestrial sources. Given the prevalence of DME in many complex airspaces and terminal areas, the target of DME/DME supporting RNP 1 is desirable. The route to adoption, however, has not been as straight forward as originally envisioned. One reason for that delay has been the threat from multipath-induced errors. This paper proposes a way of detecting and excluding multipath-affected measurements, and it predicts the achievable navigation performance, after multipath exclusion.
