Abstract: The United States Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) for civil aircraft navigation is focused primarily on the Conterminous United States (CONUS). Other Satellite- Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) include the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) and the Japanese Global Navigation Satellite System (MSAS). Navigation using WAAS reqiures accurate calibration of ionospheric delays. to provide delay corrections for single frequency GPS users, the wide area differential GPS systems depend upon accurate determination of ionospheric total electron content (TEC) along radio links. Dual frequency transmissions from GPS satellites have been used for many years to measure and map ionospheric TEX on regional and global scales.
