Three plausibility tests are used to validate the location: Coherency of measurements with the model used (in mathematical terms, we analyze the likelihood of the Kalman filterâ€™s innovation Transmission frequency continuity, If both locations fail more than two tests, then the location is not distributed to users, unless they subscribe to Service Plus/Auxiliary Location Processing (See Chapter 3.6 for more information).

Each time the satellite instrument receives a message from a transmitter, it measures the frequency and time-tags the arrival. This also means that there is a 50% probability that your measurement lies OUTSIDE the 10 meter radius circle! There is always a "probability of error" in -any- measurement. The system returned: (22) Invalid argument The remote host or network may be down.

To be 98.9% sure that your measurement is within a circle of a fixed radius, you would have to multiply Garmin's EPE value by about 2.55. It is broken down into squares with sides of 30 arc seconds of an arc and is used to estimate platform altitude. Your cache administrator is webmaster. With present GPS technology and expensive survey grade GPS instruments and by post processing field measurements, it is possible to achieve SUB-CENTIMETER measurement accuracy.

Magellan's EPE numbers appear to be even more optimistic (maybe the 1 sigma value or even lower) while Lowrance seems to be someplace between the RMS and 2 sigma values. These parameters are available in clearly identified table columns (see below). The system returned: (22) Invalid argument The remote host or network may be down.

The system returned: (22) Invalid argument The remote host or network may be down. The system returned: (22) Invalid argument The remote host or network may be down. Both techniques compute the Doppler frequency shift on the transmitters signal. 3.2.2 The positioning algorithm based on Least squares analysis (unchanged since 2007) If four or more messages are received by For all locations, an estimation of the accuracy is provided.

For each of the two possible locations, and by using all messages received during the satellite pass over the platform, a least-squares analysis is used to refine the estimates of the In fact, Garmin's EPE readout is generally accepted to indicate that there is an EQUAL probability that the error is GREATER or LESS THAN the indicated EPE. Via ArgosDirect These parameters are also available via ArgosDirect. For the Least squares method with 2 and 3 messages, CLS provides only: Ellipse orientation GDOP* (Geometric Dilution of Precision) *Geometric Dilution of Precision (GDOP) is a measure of the effect

Joe Mehaffey The Argos system calculates locations by measuring the Doppler Effect on transmission frequency. For instance, If you are told that your GPS position measurement is accurate to 10 meters CEP, this means that there is a 50% probability that your measurement lies INSIDE a EPE is generally an ESTIMATE OF POSITION ERROR and not a GUARANTEE of maximum position error. Users must request them from their User Services.

This method is extremely robust and positions can be calculated based on one message per satellite pass.

The actual Argos location accuracy depends on both the GDOP value and the quality of the transmitter (frequency stability).

As a general rule, a smaller GDOP value yields a more accurate position. Relationships between some common measurement notations (from Sam Wormley) sqr(alpha) Probability Notation ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 1.00 39.4% 1-sigma or standard ellipse 1.18 50.0% Circular Error Probable (CEP) 1.414 63.2% Distance RMS (DRMS) 2.00 Column title Error radius Semi-major axis Semi-minor axis Ellipse orientation GDOP Units Meters Meters Meters Degrees (from North when heading East) m/Hz 3.2.5 Altitude estimations Location computations are extremely sensitive Similarly, when the satellite approaches a transmitter, the frequency of the transmitted signal measured by the onboard receiver is higher than the actual transmitted frequency, and lower when it moves away.

Should you be told that your GPS measurement is accurate to within 25 meters (95% confidence), This means that you can be 95% sure that your measurement is somewhere within a Your cache administrator is webmaster. Error Measures: 1 sigma, 2 sigma, 3 sigma, 50% CEP, 2DRMS, 95% confidence > What does this all mean? It is NOT an indication that the given position readout is within "EPE" feet of absolute perfection.

But then: What does EPE mean on my GPS? An estimation of the location accuracy is calculated using the residual error and the satellite pass characteristics. Since 2011, users can choose between two location processing algorithms for Argos. Your cache administrator is webmaster.

The intersection of the cones for these two messages with the terrestrial radius plus the height declared for the transmitter (altitude sphere) gives two possible locations. The Doppler Effect is the change in frequency of a sound wave or electromagnetic wave that occurs when the source of vibration and observer are moving relative to each other. If EPE reads 10 feet, then I am within 10 feet of the actual lon/lat position readout on the GPS- Right???
