The geometric range [math]\displaystyle{ \rho_{rcv}^{sat} }[/math] is the Euclidean distance between the satellite and receiver coordinates at the transmission and reception time, respectively:

[math]\displaystyle{ \rho_{rcv}^{sat}=\left\|{\mathbf r}^{sat}-{\mathbf r}_{rcv}\right \|=\sqrt{(x^{sat}-x_{rcv})^2+(y^{sat}-y_{rcv})^2+(z^{sat}-z_{rcv})^2} \qquad \mbox{(1)} }[/math]
