Title: Evaluation of a GPS Receiver for Code and Carrier-Phase Time and frequency Transfer
Published: November 15, 2010
Abstract: We evaluate a dual-frequency, multi-channel GPS receiver for time and frequency transfer applications. The receiver is able to lock its internal clock to an external reference frequency and synchronize the receiver clock to an external timing signal. The receiver is capable of measuring GPS L1 C/A code, L1P, and L2P semi-codeless signals. The receiver also makes L1 and L2 frequency measurements. We report the receiver performance for code-based and carrier-phase time and frequency comparisons.
