As a consequence, coordinates derived from the broadcast ephemeris with Transit or GPS refer to WGS. This is the main reason for the high acceptance of WGS 84 as a primary reference coordinate system. 1 (cf. NIMA, 2000). 1. 1 Reference Coordinate Systems 29 WGS 84 practically coincides with the Geodetic Reference System 1980. , 1998), cf. 2]. The WGS 84 coordinate system is a Conventional Terrestrial Reference System (CTRS) and follows the criteria outlined in the IERS Conventions (cf. 2], McCarthy (2000)).

In order to meet the various requiredT3 ments, stemming from science and technoldT2 ogy, the relationship between the different time scales have to be established with the Pole highest possible accuracy. Fig. g. 12. Effect of timing errors in satelcorresponds to about 1 × 10−10 s. 2 for Earth rotation, dT2 [s] ≤ 1 × 10 −6 for orbital motion, and dT3 [s] ≤ 1 × 10 −10 for signal travel time. 50) Sidereal Time and Universal Time Sidereal time and universal time are directly related to the rotation of Earth, and they are thus equivalent time scales.

2) Matrix multiplication is not commutative R i (µ)Rj (ν) = Rj (ν)R i (µ). 5) (3) Matrix multiplication is associative R i (Rj R k ) = (R i Rj )R k . 6) (4) Rotations around the same axis are additive R i (µ)R i (ν) = R i (µ + ν). 7) (5) Inverse and transpose are related by T R −1 i (µ) = R i (µ) = R i (−µ). 8) (6) The following relationship also holds (R i Rj )−1 = Rj−1 R −1 i . The polarity of coordinate axes can be changed with reflectionmatrices       −1 0 0 1 0 0 1 0 0 S 1 =  0 1 0 ; S 2 = 0 −1 0 ; S 3 = 0 1 0  .
