GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou for Mobile Devices

The navigation sensors for location-based services (LBS) are complex technical systems. Modern technical science can answer most questions about the optimality of particular position determination methods, signal processing algorithms, electronic circuits or similar well-defined problems, but the rigorous answer to the questions concerning the optimal LBS positioning sensor are still a big problem.

Thinking Small

Equations 2, 7, 8, 9, 10 & 11

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are finding increased application in both domestic and governmental applications. Small UAVs (maximum take off weight less than 20 kilograms) comprise the category of the smallest and lightest platforms that also fly at lower altitudes (under less than 150 meters).

Designs for this class of device have focused on creating UAVs that can operate in urban canyons or even inside buildings, fly along hallways, and carry listening and recording devices, transmitters, or miniature TV cameras.

A Universal GNSS Software Receiver Toolbox

In recent years, numerous, relatively inexpensive hardware platforms for conducting scientific research using the software defined radio (SDR) paradigm have become commercially available. The Manufacturers section near the end of this article lists examples of several of these. In turn, this has spurred universities and research groups around the world to adopt this technology for advanced GNSS signals-based research and development.
