(GPS terminology)

The coarse/acquisition or clear/acquisition code modulated onto the GPS L1 signal. This code is a sequence of 1023 pseudorandom binary biphase modulations on the GPS carrier at a chipping rate of 1.023 MHz, thus having a code repetition period of 1 millisecond. The code was selected to provide good acquisition properties. Also known as the "civilian code" or S-code.
