Abstract: The GPS flight experiment on TOPEX/Poseidon marks the first opportunity to demonstrate the high accuracy and cost effectiveness of GPS-based precise orbit determination for low Earth Orbiters. One year into the experiment, GPS has delivered orbit accuracies surpassing the best of the conventional groundbased tracking systems, DORIS and satellite laser ranging, and at a far lower cost.
