This report treats the application of the NAVSTAR/Global Positioning System as the Position/Location System in Real Time Casualty Assessment experiments. The desirable characteristics of a position/location system are listed. A current position/location system, the Range Measuring System, is used as a comparison reference for the Global Positioning System. Operation and parameters of the Global Positioning System are presented. A description and the results of a five-day demonstration conducted on an instrumented range using a Global Positioning System prototype receiver are given. It is concluded that the Global Positioning System has some important advantages and that more study and further tests are needed to determine the full extent of its potential.
