Concept and Feasibility Demonstration
In addition to positioning, navigation and timing, GPS turns out to be
a useful sensor for studies of the Earth’s atmosphere. Synthetically
generated, phased-array antennas can process GPS signals to create
large antenna apertures. The resulting narrow-beam generation
capabilities mitigate interference and jamming and produce
high-resolution radar images — which could lead to interesting civil
and military applications.
Observing the GPS L5 Test Transmission from SVN49 Using Software Radio Processing
The test signal from SVN49, the latest Block IIR-M GPS satellite, has
different characteristics than the operational L5 signal
specifications. A group of Ohio University researchers discovered the
discrepancies when they tracked the new L5 signal using a commercial
antenna and a modified software GPS receiver of their own design.
Observing the First GPS Satellite with an L5 Payload
Leading GNSS researchers present the initial results of their observations of the new (and long-awaited) GPS L5 signal that began transmitting on April 10.
Part I: C-Band Services, Space and Ground Segments, Overall Performance
The first of a two-part series that will examine the potential for transmitting GNSS signals in the C-band portion of the radio frequency spectrum. The series will cover C-band services and the effects on a GNSS constellation, space and ground segment, and C-band signal design and user equipment.
GNSS providers continue to exhibit nationalist tendencies
Defining who we are by sketching the shadows of strangers is often easier than filling in the outline of our own qualities and aspirations on which to build the basis of mutual interests.
