This approach is similar like in geodesy, where passing time hasn?t any impact on statistical solution. Presented paper evaluates alternative approach to position error analyses, where the random values are: working and failures times of the system. Arbitrary accepted certain value of position error was assumed as a decision criterion of the system for working state definition. The general mathematical model of the availability of certain value of position error is presented and the special case ? exponential distributions of lifetimes and failure times model ? was also analysed. The model was adopted for positioning based on EGNOS system measurements and some results are present.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Safety of Navigation, Accuracy, Position Error, Navigational System, Positioning System, Mathematical Model, EGNOS, Marine Navigation} }
