Understanding Satellite Navigation book cover

Understanding Satellite Navigation

Foundations of Satellite Navigation explains the basic working principles of this rapidly emerging technology from the foundation level, with the bare minimum of mathematics and without complex equations. It helps to conceptualize the underlying theory from first principles, building up knowledge gradually using practical demonstrations and worked examples. A full range of MATLAB simulations is used to visualize concepts and solve problems through simulations, allowing the reader to see what happens to signals and systems with different configurations. Implementation and applications are discussed, along with some special topics.


With this book the student will learn:
• How a satellite navigation system works
• How to improve efficiency when working with a satellite navigation system
• How to use MATLAB for simulation,
• Various possible implementation approaches for the technology
• The most significant applications of satellite navigation systems.

Undergraduate students; professionals in the area of satellite navigation, coming from different backgrounds
