Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I need to calculate how accurate a GPS system is using only Special Relativity and a very basic knowledge of GR (without tensors...which is limited).

I'm not sure where to begin however... where does the uncertainty in the measurement come from? How can I calculate the size of the uncertainty of a GPS position?

Any references or insight would be GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Thanks PF,

J
