A GPS-IRNSS combined navigation system is emerging in India. It is possible to increase the accuracy of the receiver or user's position at any time and under any weather conditions with a combined system. It is possible to use these navigation systems for finding the precise location of receivers in civil aviation, precision applications such as surveying, disaster management, and other applications. Usually, satellite navigation systems are based on a geometric relationship between satellite and receiver, with errors caused by atmospheric conditions, multipath, and other factors affecting accuracy. Geometry of satellite receivers is measured by the Dilution of Precision (DOP), a unit less quantity. This paper investigates the possibility possible to obtain better accuracy by combining GPS and IRNSS constellations. This improved accuracy is typically useful for precision applications such as surveying and disaster management.
