The global positioning system (GPS) is the pioneer under the present and developing global Navigation satellite systems (GNSS). In the beginning of this year a new milestone has been reached with the start of the signal transmission of the first GPS Block III space craft, which was launched with a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on December 23, 2018. The satellites of this new GPS generation are built by Lockheed Martin and contain a wide range of technological improvements and new features compared to their predecessors, while maintaining compatibility with other satellites in the constellation for navigation users. The transmission of the L1 C/A, L1 P(Y) and L2 P(Y) signals has been started on January 9, 2019. Within this work an initial signal quality analyses and user perferomance assessment is conducted.
