The method of common-view is characterized by higher precision, good convenience in use, and cheap instrument. A new time synchronous method for multiple users system by common-view technology is presented based on the GEO Positioning System (GEOPS). And the GEOPS common-view theory is studied for which is different from the other GNSS system.
This paper introduces the working process and the time service pattern of the GEOPS. In the GEOPS, the pseudo-range found by the receiver through testing is actually the measurement of the whole link from the main control station and through the satellite to the receiver. Due to the different distances between the main control station and each satellite, this measurement has to be done using the upload delay correction by the main control station. The upload delay adopts a polynomial model and the polynomial parameters are demodulated from the navigation message to calculate the delay correction value during the adjustment. In accordance with these characteristics of GEOPS, we propose the GEOPS common-view theory. The format parameters of GEOPS common-view and data calculating method are presented. The time synchronization system, the error analysis and the applied plan of GEOPS common-view technology are introduced
