Abstract
<jats:p>In multilateration systems, Bancroft algorithm is often used to estimate the location of objects. This algorithm is synthesized for satellite navigation systems. The algorithm allows to obtain the location estimation by means of direct method and does not require significant computing costs. These properties set it apart from algorithms using optimization approaches. However, according to the results of computer simulation, the accuracy of estimation yielded by the algorithm can be several times worse than potentially enable one. The article proposes a method for modifying the Ban-croft algorithm. Modification involves refining the Bancroft estimates by ...
