GPS Block IIF satellites are able to redistribute the transmit power between the signal components. This ability is called Flex power, and it has been developed as a remedy against jamming. Since it is operationally not possible to increase the transmit power for all signal components simultaneously, a redistribution between them is necessary under certain operational situations. Flex power has been active on Block IIF satellites since January 2017 over a specific regional area and has an impact on differential code bias estimation as well as the signal-to-noise density ratio. A network of the International GNSS Service stations containing only Septentrio PolaRx5 and PolaRx5TR receivers between August 1 and November 21, 2019 has been used for differential code bias estimation using GPS L1 C/A, L1 P(Y), L2 P(Y), and L2C signals with and without consideration of the flex power in the estimation process for Block IIF satellites. The estimation results are compared with the German Aerospace Center as well as the Chinese Academy of Sciences DCB products to validate the results.
