Measurement Plan to Determine the Potential Interference Impact to Global Positioning System Receivers from Ultra-Wideband Transmission Systems

This measurement program has been undertaken to develop information to evaluate the potential for interference from UWB transmission systems to GPS receivers used for different applications. The GPS/UWB Measurement Plan identifies the GPS receivers to be considered; identifies the UWB transmission system parameters to be considered; proposes a GPS receiver performance metric and criterion; and develops general measurement procedures for calibration and assessing the interference potential. The plan will incorporate tasks undertaken at the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA's) Office of Spectrum Management (OSM) in Washington and NTIA's Institute of Telecommunication Sciences (ITS) in Boulder, Colorado. The plan will be closely coordinated with the spectrum management community, GPS manufacturers and users and the UWB developers.
