Abstract:

This paper provides a description of the potential application of GPS to determine the position of a tethered satellite with respect to the Space Shuttle. Relative positioning is performed applying the position correction method to post-processed experiments, using only C/A code correlating receivers. Results from simulated experiments are included.
