All the professional assistance you want to comprehend, construct, and function GPS receivers

The Second Edition of this acclaimed e-book allows readers to appreciate and observe the complicated operation rules of world positioning approach (GPS) receivers. even if GPS receivers are well-known in lifestyle to help in positioning and navigation, this can be the one textual content that's dedicated to whole assurance in their operation rules. the writer, one of many finest professionals within the GPS box, provides the fabric from a software program receiver perspective, an process that is helping readers higher comprehend operation and that displays the forecasted integration of GPS receivers into such daily units as mobile phones. targeting civilian C/A code, the publication offers the instruments and data had to comprehend and make the most all elements of receiver know-how in addition to correct navigation schemes:

  • Overview of GPS fundamentals and the constellation of satellites that include the GPS system
  • Detailed exam of GPS sign constitution, acquisition, and tracking
  • Step-by-step presentation of the mathematical formulation for calculating a user's position
  • Demonstration of using machine courses to run key equations
  • Instructions for constructing to gather digitized facts for a software program GPS receiver
  • Complete bankruptcy demonstrating a GPS receiver following a sign circulate to figure out a user's position

The Second Edition of this hugely acclaimed textual content has been enormously multiplied, together with 3 new chapters:

  • Acquisition of vulnerable signals
  • Tracking of susceptible signals
  • GPS receiver comparable subjects

Following the author's professional information and easy-to-follow kind, engineers and scientists research all that's had to comprehend, construct, and function GPS receivers. The book's logical circulation from simple recommendations to purposes makes it an exceptional textbook for upper-level undergraduate and graduate scholars in electric engineering, instant communications, and machine science.
