About DORIS/RINEX format

RINEX/DORIS 3.0 is a format derived from the RINEX/GPS format and adapted for the phase and pseudo-range measurements of the DGXX instruments
Format description
A detailed description is given in the specific document "RINEX DORIS 3.0".
A quick description of the DORIS/RINEX format can be found in "Introduction to DORIS RINEX. The principle chosen in this document is to take an example of RINEX content and describe the main parameters.
About RINEX/DORIS data processing
Recommendations from the Analysis Coordination.
Model equations for a complete solution using the  DORIS raw phase and pseudo-range measurements are detailed in the document "DORIS models and solutions" (draft).
RINEX/DORIS processing in the GINS software is presented in the document "The Doppler observation equation in the GINS software".
Routines to read DORIS/RINEX files (courtesy by Jean-michel Lemoine, CNES)
The "tar file" contains the Fortran90 subroutines used in GINS to read the RINEX files. The comments are in French. The routines read a file named "RINEX_test" which contains either 1 or more (concatenated) RINEX files and produce on output a file named "mesures_doris_format_gins". In this file the measurement is the phase difference during the 10" count interval on the 2 GHz channel (the Doppler count). For any question or mistake found in those subroutines, please contact Jean-michel Lemoine.
Data archive and naming conventions
The related part to DORIS/RINEX files is extracted from the IDS data structure and formats and reported hereafter.

 

File naming convention
Name: sssrxYYDDD.LLL.Z (Ex: ja2rx09001.002.Z)
where
sss = the satellite three-character abbreviation (1)
rx = fixed part (rx for rinex)
YY = last two digits of year of first data
DDD = three-digit day of year of first data
LLL = version number (starting with 001 for the initial version) when the file is replaced
Z = (upper cap) points to compacted file (Unix)
(1) Three-character satellite name abbreviations:
ja2 = Jason-2
cs2 = Cryosat-2
h2a = HY-2A
srl= Saral
