Fundamentals of Global Positioning System Receivers
A Software Approach
Second Edition
by James Bao-Yen Tsui

Fundamentals of Global Positioning System Receivers provides all the expert guidance you need to understand, build, and operate GPS receivers.

Fundamentals of Global Positioning System Receivers enables readers to understand and apply the complex operation principles of global positioning system (GPS) receivers.

Although GPS receivers are widely used in everyday life to aid in positioning and navigation, this is the only text that is devoted to complete coverage of their operation principles.

Fundamentals of Global Positioning System Receivers presents the material from a software receiver viewpoint, an approach that helps readers better understand operation and that reflects the forecasted integration of GPS receivers into such everyday devices as cellular telephones.

Concentrating on civilian C/A code, Fundamentals of Global Positioning System Receivers provides the tools and information needed to understand and exploit all aspects of receiver technology as well as relevant navigation schemes:

  • Overview of GPS basics and the constellation of satellites that comprise the GPS system
  • Detailed examination of GPS signal structure, acquisition, and tracking
  • Step-by-step presentation of the mathematical formulas for calculating a user's position
  • Demonstration of the use of computer programs to run key equations
  • Instructions for developing hardware to collect digitized data for a software GPS receiver
  • Complete chapter demonstrating a GPS receiver following a signal flow to determine a user's position
