3 Time Synchronization Measurement Model The satellite-ground microwave observation model can be expressed as [4]: q0 ¼ q þ c Á ðDtS À DtR Þ þ Dqion þ Dqtro þ Dqrel þ Dqscc þ Dqant þ Dqml þ e ð1Þ In this formula, q0 is microwave observation value, q is the true distance from the ground station to the satellite; c is the light speed, DtS is satellite clock error, and DtR is ground station clock error; Dqion is ionospheric delay error, Dqtro is tropospheric delay error; Dqrel is relative delay error; Dqscc is satellite centroid compensation correction; Dqant is antenna phase center error; Dqml is multipath effect; e is pseudo range observation noise.

Shu and W. Wang Fig. 025 times the corresponding carrier wavelength Ambiguity Resolution Performance The ambiguity resolution is investigated for S0 ultra-wide-lane combination (1, −5, 4), (0, 1, −1), and (1, −4, 3), S0 most used wide-lane combination (1, −1, 0), S1a ultra-wide-lane combination (−4, 4, 1) and B1 (1, 0, 0). Tables 3, 4, and 5 summarize the ambiguity success rate for three different methods: recursive LSQ kinematic method, reduced dynamic method, and the famous tri-frequency carrier phase ambiguity resolution method-TCAR.

The ambiguity fixing performance and relative navigation accuracy for Beidou-based LEO formation spacecraft are validated using the simulated scenario. The results reveal a variety of optional observation combinations which can be offered by Beidou system under different navigation algorithms and for different baseline length. Future work includes research in Beidou-based high dynamic attitude determination and positioning technology, as well as relative navigation algorithm based on multiple navigation system.
