Summary Thousands of people and businesses turn on a GPS receiver and expect to know where they are and where they are going on any given day. These users of GPS expect their position, velocity, and timing to be consistent and accurate. There are multiple sources of GPS error, starting with the satellites and continuing to the receiver and its internal components and methods for calculations. Advanced Global Navigation System (AGNS), the simulator used for this project, is a source for truth data and allows the researcher to set the external GPS error to zero. AGNS uses real satellite data, so the receiver does not recognize the difference between acquiring satellites in live sky and in the simulated environment. There is also the advantage of knowing the exact satellite positions, in order to assess and model the nominal errors introduced by the receiver. After researching and modeling the errors, it was determined to be within seven meters which is well within the key performance parameters set by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) surveillance project.
