A pseudorandom code (sequence of ones and zeros) that is known to the
receiver. By time-aligning a receiver-generated version and the
receiver-measured version of the code, the time of arrival (TOA) of a
defined point in the code sequence, called an epoch, can be found in

Conceptually, the receiver measures the TOAs (according to its own
clock) of four satellite signals. From the TOAs and the TOTs, the
receiver forms four time of flight (TOF) values, which are (given the
speed of light) approximately equivalent to receiver-satellite ranges.
The receiver then computes its three-dimensional position and clock
deviation from the four TOFs.
In practice the receiver position (in three dimensional Cartesian
coordinates with origin at the Earth's center) and the offset of the
receiver clock relative to the

(L1 signal) and 1.2276 GHz (L2 signal). The satellite
network uses a CDMA spread-spectrum technique[104]:607 where the
low-bitrate message data is encoded with a high-rate pseudo-random
(PRN) sequence that is different for each satellite. The receiver must
be aware of the PRN codes for each satellite to reconstruct the actual
message data. The C/A code, for civilian use, transmits data at
1.023 million chips per second, whereas the P code, for U.S.
military use, transmits at 10.23 million chips per second. The
actual internal reference of the satellites is 10.22999999543 MHz
to compensate for relativistic effects[105][106] that make observers
on the
Demodulating and Decoding
Because all of the satellite signals are modulated onto the same L1
carrier frequency, the signals must be separated after demodulation.
This is done by assigning each satellite a unique binary sequence
known as a Gold code. The signals are decoded after demodulation using
addition of the Gold codes corresponding to the satellites monitored
by the receiver.[114][115]
If the almanac information has previously been acquired, the receiver
picks the satellites to listen for by their PRNs, unique numbers in
the range 1 through 32. If the almanac information is not in
memory, the receiver enters a search mode until a lock is obtained on
one of the satellites. To obtain a lock, it is necessary that there be
an unobstructed line of sight from the receiver to the satellite. The
receiver can then acquire the almanac and determine the satellites it
should listen for. As it detects each satellite's signal, it
identifies it by its distinct C/A code pattern. There can be a
delay of up to 30 seconds before the first estimate of position
because of the need to read the ephemeris data.
Processing of the navigation message enables the determination of the
time of transmission and the satellite position at this time. For more
information see Demodulation and Decoding, Advanced.

Both the equations for four satellites, or the least squares equations
for more than four, are non-linear and need special solution methods.
A common approach is by iteration on a linearized form of the
equations, such as the Gauss–Newton algorithm.

Integrating external information into the calculation process can
materially improve accuracy. Such augmentation systems are generally
named or described based on how the information arrives. Some systems
transmit additional error information (such as clock drift, ephemera,
or ionospheric delay), others characterize prior errors, while a third
group provides additional navigational or vehicle information.
Examples of augmentation systems include the Wide Area Augmentation

displaystyle frac 1,mathrm s 1575.42times 10^ 6 =0.63475,mathrm ns approx 1,mathrm ns , which is about one-thousandth of the C/A

displaystyle frac 1,mathrm s 1023times 10^ 3 =977.5,mathrm ns approx 1000,mathrm ns , to act as an additional clock signal and resolve the uncertainty.
The phase difference error in the normal
ϕ ( r i , s j , t k ) displaystyle phi (r_ i ,s_ j ,t_ k ) denote the phase of the carrier of satellite j measured by receiver i at time
t k displaystyle t_ k . This notation shows the meaning of the subscripts i, j, and k. The receiver (r), satellite (s), and time (t) come in alphabetical order as arguments of ϕ displaystyle phi and to balance readability and conciseness, let
ϕ i , j , k = ϕ ( r i , s j , t k ) displaystyle phi _ i,j,k =phi (r_ i ,s_ j ,t_ k ) be a concise abbreviation. Also we define three functions, :
Δ r , Δ s , Δ t displaystyle Delta ^ r ,Delta ^ s ,Delta ^ t , which return differences between receivers, satellites, and time points, respectively. Each function has variables with three subscripts as its arguments. These three functions are defined below. If
α i , j , k displaystyle alpha _ i,j,k is a function of the three integer arguments, i, j, and k then it is a valid argument for the functions, :
Δ r , Δ s , Δ t displaystyle Delta ^ r ,Delta ^ s ,Delta ^ t , with the values defined as
Δ r ( α i , j , k ) = α i + 1 , j , k − α i , j , k displaystyle Delta ^ r (alpha _ i,j,k )=alpha _ i+1,j,k -alpha _ i,j,k ,
Δ s ( α i , j , k ) = α i , j + 1 , k − α i , j , k displaystyle Delta ^ s (alpha _ i,j,k )=alpha _ i,j+1,k -alpha _ i,j,k , and
Δ t ( α i , j , k ) = α i , j , k + 1 − α i , j , k displaystyle Delta ^ t (alpha _ i,j,k )=alpha _ i,j,k+1 -alpha _ i,j,k . Also if
α i , j , k a n d β l , m , n displaystyle alpha _ i,j,k and beta _ l,m,n are valid arguments for the three functions and a and b are constants then ( a α i , j , k + b β l , m , n ) displaystyle (a alpha _ i,j,k +b beta _ l,m,n ) is a valid argument with values defined as
Δ r ( a α i , j , k + b β l , m , n ) = a Δ r ( α i , j , k ) + b Δ r ( β l , m , n ) displaystyle Delta ^ r (a alpha _ i,j,k +b beta _ l,m,n )=a Delta ^ r (alpha _ i,j,k )+b Delta ^ r (beta _ l,m,n ) ,
Δ s ( a α i , j , k + b β l , m , n ) = a Δ s ( α i , j , k ) + b Δ s ( β l , m , n ) displaystyle Delta ^ s (a alpha _ i,j,k +b beta _ l,m,n )=a Delta ^ s (alpha _ i,j,k )+b Delta ^ s (beta _ l,m,n ) , and
Δ t ( a α i , j , k + b β l , m , n ) = a Δ t ( α i , j , k ) + b Δ t ( β l , m , n ) displaystyle Delta ^ t (a alpha _ i,j,k +b beta _ l,m,n )=a Delta ^ t (alpha _ i,j,k )+b Delta ^ t (beta _ l,m,n ) . Receiver clock errors can be approximately eliminated by differencing the phases measured from satellite 1 with that from satellite 2 at the same epoch.[141] This difference is designated as
Δ s ( ϕ 1 , 1 , 1 ) = ϕ 1 , 2 , 1 − ϕ 1 , 1 , 1 displaystyle Delta ^ s (phi _ 1,1,1 )=phi _ 1,2,1 -phi _ 1,1,1 Double differencing[142] computes the difference of receiver 1's satellite difference from that of receiver 2. This approximately eliminates satellite clock errors. This double difference is: Δ r ( Δ s ( ϕ 1 , 1 , 1 ) ) = Δ r ( ϕ 1 , 2 , 1 − ϕ 1 , 1 , 1 ) = Δ r ( ϕ 1 , 2 , 1 ) − Δ r ( ϕ 1 , 1 , 1 ) = ( ϕ 2 , 2 , 1 − ϕ 1 , 2 , 1 ) − ( ϕ 2 , 1 , 1 − ϕ 1 , 1 , 1 ) displaystyle begin aligned Delta ^ r (Delta ^ s (phi _ 1,1,1 )),&=,Delta ^ r (phi _ 1,2,1 -phi _ 1,1,1 )&=,Delta ^ r (phi _ 1,2,1 )-Delta ^ r (phi _ 1,1,1 )&=,(phi _ 2,2,1 -phi _ 1,2,1 )-(phi _ 2,1,1 -phi _ 1,1,1 )end aligned Triple differencing[143] subtracts the receiver difference from time 1 from that of time 2. This eliminates the ambiguity associated with the integral number of wavelengths in carrier phase provided this ambiguity does not change with time. Thus the triple difference result eliminates practically all clock bias errors and the integer ambiguity. Atmospheric delay and satellite ephemeris errors have been significantly reduced. This triple difference is:
Δ t ( Δ r ( Δ s ( ϕ 1 , 1 , 1 ) ) ) displaystyle Delta ^ t (Delta ^ r (Delta ^ s (phi _ 1,1,1 ))) Triple difference results can be used to estimate unknown variables.
For example, if the position of receiver 1 is known but the
position of receiver 2 unknown, it may be possible to estimate
the position of receiver 2 using numerical root finding and least
squares. Triple difference results for three independent time pairs
may be sufficient to solve for receiver 2's three position
components. This may require a numerical procedure.[144][145] An
approximation of receiver 2's position is required to use such a
numerical method. This initial value can probably be provided from the
navigation message and the intersection of sphere surfaces. Such a
reasonable estimate can be key to successful multidimensional root
finding. Iterating from three time pairs and a fairly good initial
value produces one observed triple difference result for
receiver 2's position. Processing additional time pairs can
improve accuracy, overdetermining the answer with multiple solutions.
