In GPS receivers, carrier phase measurement can be used to improve the receiver's position accuracy. In order to maintain the accuracy, cycle-slip must be detected and repaired instantaneously and accurately. This paper first analyzes the implementation cycle-slip detection and repair method of GPS data based on Doppler measurement. Then introduce a simplified oscillator model. Based on the oscillator model, a modified method is proposed, which avoids the influence of the local oscillator bias. Data tests show that the root mean square error of the time-difference measurement residual based on the proposed method is small enough for detecting and repairing the cycle-slip instantaneously.
