Abstract
In August 1995, the Esquimalt Defence Research Detachment and the Maritime Proving & Evaluation Unit (MP&EU) used post-processed GPS data to yield highly accurate position estimates for a CP-140 flight. The results of this trial indicate and ability to determine the aircraft's position within 4 m when up to 400 km from the GPS reference station and within less than a metre when 20 km from the reference. These results are independent of aircraft altitude, attitude, and flight manoeuvres.
