Abstract
Since June 1985, Canada has employed the Magnavox GPS Manpack receivers in support of several programs. Primarily the set was used as a "reference" system during tests of the Primary Land Arctic Navigation System (PLANS) on board an M117 armoured personnel carrier during field trials at CFB Petawawa in Nov. 1985 and Sept. 1986. In addition, the set was employed in the same capacity during sea trials of the Marine Integrated Navigation System (MINS) off the west coast of Vancouver Island during Nov. 1986. During the sea trial, reference data was also being recorded from a Syledis shore-based reference system (2-5 metre accuracy). GPS Manpack is compared to the Syledis data and results are contained in the report.
