MSAS performance evaluation under ionospheric conditions
Nyo Mi Saw, Nobuaki Kubo and Sam Pullen
In order to examine the capabilities of MSAS, we compare the positioning performance of MSAS and Single-Frequency precise point positioning (PPP) at 7 GPS reference stations from northern Japan to southern Japan selected from the network of over 1200 stations that make up the GEONET
