Abstract : The Enhanced Position Location Reporting System (EPLRS) is a network of wireless tactical radios that distributes digital data between many mobile users. In addition, EPLRS has a position reporting capability allowing mobile users to determine their position based on time difference of arrival measurements from multiple reference radio units. EPLRS has the potential to be used in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles as a navigation system backup to GPS. This report details a number of EPLRS position tests conducted at DSTO Edinburgh and the outcome of these tests with a view to UAV usage.
