BACKGROUND:
With the increasing demand for positioning technology there is a growing need for precise positioning by Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). The new GNSSes use novel signal modulations with different structures and these changes present problems of synchronization, detection, and interference mitigation.

In severe environments, there is a need for information processing from supplemental sensors. Other issues include multipath modeling/mitigation, integrity modeling, sensors and algorithms for enabling navigation in indoor environments, emphasizing the size/power constraints of personal navigation, and performance analysis.

All of these issues have put signal processing at the heart of the field of GNSS and navigation, which is why they require more attention by the signal processing community.

In this special issue, we would like to bring together a diverse and complementary set of contributions in the area of signal processing for positioning and navigation, introduce the navigation problems to the larger signal processing community, promote further advances in the area, and help to establish a larger research community around this field.
