This paper deals with the estimation of the quality of the baseline for the calibration of distance measurement devices which was established by Serbian Military Geographic Institute for military use. The basic characteristics of the baseline are explained, and a plan for the checking of the baseline quality is proposed. The measurements realised so far can be grouped into two phases. The measurements have been processed, and the estimates of the distances of this length standard have been obtained. The standard deviations of the least squares estimates of the lengths were better than 0.3 mm in each epoch. This precision offers the possibility to check all measurement devices with a minimum uncertainty of the calibrations, of +/-(1 mm + 1 ppm). The stability of the pillars is also analysed. The conventional deformation analysis method was applied to three datasets and the results obtained by evaluating them are shown.
