This paper begins with an overview of typical surveying requirements. Consequently the design concepts for the development of the portable and fully self-contained GPS Satellite Surveying Equipment WM101 are described. The principal features are: C/A code receiver, simultaneous phase measurements of the reconstructed carrier signals of the L1 frequency from several GPS stallites, and recording of the processed GPS satellite signal data on tape cassette in the field unit. Precise position differences are calculated by post-processing of the recorded data in a separate small computer.
