Engineering Satellite-Based Navigation and Timing: Global Navigation Satellite Systems, Signals, and Receivers (Hardcover)
This book describes the design and performance analysis of satnav systems, signals, and receivers, with a general approach that applies to all satnav systems and signals in use or under development. It also provides succinct descriptions and comparisons of each satnav system.
- Clearly structured, and comprehensive depiction of engineering satellite-based navigation and timing systems, signals, and receivers
- GPS as well as all new and modernized systems (SBAS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, QZSS, IRNSS) and signals being developed and fielded
- Theoretical and applied review questions, which can be used for homework or to obtain deeper insights into the material
- Extensive equations describing techniques and their performance, illustrated by MATLAB plots
- New results, novel insights, and innovative descriptions for key approaches and results in systems engineering and receiver design
John W. Betz, PhD, is a Fellow of The MITRE Corporation and an internationally recognized expert in satellite-based navigation and timing. He is an innovator whose technical contributions and personal involvement have shaped the design of modernized GPS as well as other satnav systems. He is a sought-after speaker and instructor with multiple award-winning publications, and is a Fellow of the IEEE and the Institute of Navigation. His extensive knowledge, combined with his ability to provide a clearly structured and comprehensive depiction of all aspects of satnav engineering, promise to make this book the standard text and reference for this field.
