Satellite Positioning LECTURES

Author: 
Dr. Jan Johansson, CHALMERS University

LECTURE 1
Aim: To introduce the principles of the operation of GNSS and its limitations and applications. We include information about all currently known GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems):
– Global Positioning System (GPS)
– GLObal NAvigation Satellite System (GLONASS)
– GNSS under development (e.g. GALILEO, BeiDou, etc.)

Generic topics include millimeter accuracy positioning and kinematic GNSS, Atmospheric monitoring, GNSS Reflectometry.

 LECTURE 2
- Fundamentals of GPS
- Method of encoding GPS signals (bi-­‐phase, quadrature modulation)
- Fundamentals of correlation methods used
- Specifics of the GPS system (Frequencies, Chip, rates, Data rates and message content)
