Summary

All fundamental principles behind modern satellite positioning to acquire, track and evaluate direct and indirect satellite signals and process them in relation to example applications: Earth monitoring (landslides,...), high precision positioning (automated driving, robots,...) and time transfer.

Content

Keywords

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

Fundamentals of satellite positioning, signals and systems, or signal processing, estimation methods

Important concepts to start the course

Linear algebra, basic signal processing, statistics, programmation in Matlab

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Implement signal acquisition and tracking
  • Develop estimation procedure for precise positioning
  • Interpret and analyse error sources as signal of environment
  • Apply orbit calculation and algorithms for absolute positioning
  • Synthesize a particular problem in GNSS for other students
  • Solve carrier-phase ambiguities for cm-level positioning and ionosphere monitoring
  • Choose an appropriate method and signals according to application

Transversal skills

  • Make an oral presentation.
  • Summarize an article or a technical report.
  • Use both general and domain specific IT resources and tools
