Referring to the NAVSTAR/GPS satellite navigation system, what is the meaning of the term Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring (RAIM)?
  • A
    it is a technique that ensures the integrity of the provided data by redundant measurements.
  • B
    it is a technique whereby the receivers of the world-wide distributed monitor stations – ground segment – automatically determine the integrity of the navigation message.
  • C
    it is a method whereby a receiver ensures the integrity of the Pseudo Random Noise -PRN- code transmitted by the satellites.
  • D
    it is the ability of the GPS satellites to check the integrity of the data transmitted by the monitoring stations of the ground segment.

062.06.01.02.21 LOs: Define ‘receiver autonomous integrity monitoring (RAIM)’ as a technique that ensures the integrity of the provided data by redundant measurements.

Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring (RAIM) is a technology developed to assess the integrity of Global Positioning System (GPS) signals in a GPS receiver system. RAIM is a technique by which a receiver checks the reliability of the signals it is receiving and can detect if one of the signals is incorrect. It monitors more than 4 satellites in view and excludes the one providing an inaccurate signal when necessary. With this technique, RAIM can maintain an accurate 3D fix by monitoring 5 satellites even if satellite signals become temporarily erroneous. It improves redundancy based on multiple satellite signals and no external systems – the benefit is that a faulty satellite may be excluded and the RAIM function can still be further maintained.
