Abstract: This paper presents simulations of Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver performance for marine applications. An overview of the GPS system along with a detailed description of the GPS receiver Kalman filter implementation is given. Also presented is a description of ship behaviour in a seaway. The end of the paper presents a few selected simulation results giving the performance of a GPS receiver for marine applications.
