Satellite Navigation Receiver Design and Signal Processing

The Satellite Navigation Receiver Design and Signal Processing Theme is focused on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) receiver technology. Receiver design is a significant research challenge as the number of GNSS constellations expand and new navigation signals are broadcast to users. SNAP Lab has over a decade experience in GPS receiver research. Topics include RF and baseband algorithms associated both with traditional GPS and the unique features of new signals from GPS and other GNSS, innovative designs for signal acquisition and tracking, and the integration of several systems into one receiver. Other topic areas include: GNSS radio-frequency interference detection & geolocation; RF/antenna studies; weak GNSS signal tracking; improved signal tracking algorithms; non-PNT applications of GNSS; new GNSS signal studies & measurement modelling.

This research is able to take advantage of several generations of the SNAP-developed “Namuru” GNSS receivers.
