Abstract: IRNSS is a regional navigation system developed by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) for precise position and navigation services over the Indian sub-continent. However, the IRNSS measurements are being affected by the many residuals or biases. Differential Code Biases (DCB) are very significant in the precise measurement of ionosphere Total Electron Content (TEC). In this paper, DCB of all available IRNSS satellites and receiver is derived from the pseudorange measurements of IRNSS on L5 and S-band signals. Results show that the estimated daily mean DCB of IRNSS satellites is in the range between -0.60 nanoseconds(ns) and 0.606 ns. Further, the receiver DCB is obtained as 7.904 ns.
Index Terms: Differential Code Biases (DCB), IRNSS, Total Electron Content (TEC).
