The software includes message handling protocols for user and control plane-assisted GPS standards, as well as native support for LTO extended ephemeris service.
To help satellite operators prevent collisions in space, the Space-Based Telescopes for Actionable Refinement of Ephemeris (STARE) mission, which will consist of a constellation of nano-satellites in low earth orbit, intends to refine orbits of satellites and space debris to less than 100 meters.
Data from each satellite were collected for 13 minutes, a period long enough to ensure that each receiver participating in the common-view comparison had a complete and current copy of the latest satellite ephemeris, which requires 12.
A new orbit was determined based on an observing arc of only 14 days, and an ephemeris was made available via JPL Horizons.

The measured ranges do not represent true ranges as the signal coming from a satellite is contaminated by various errors like ephemeris error, propagation error in the form of ionospheric and tropospheric delays, satellite and receiver clock biases with respect to GPST, multipath error etc.
