GPS Interference Testing

Lab, Live, and LightSquared

In a tightly compressed timeline, the Technical Working Group established under a Federal Communications Commission order designed and conducted extensive tests assessing the likely effects of LightSquared transmissions on GPS. But how were those tests — many of them using signal generators and constellation simulators as well as live over-the-air transmissions — actually carried out and how should we interpret the results? This article will tell you.

GLONASS-K for Airborne Applications

Issues and Perspective

Russia’s GLONASS is adding new CDMA signals, renewing interest in its use for civil aviation in combination with other GNSSes. Here, a member of an international engineering team describes their work on an integrated GLONASS/Galileo/GPS aviation receiver that can process the new Russian L3 CDMA signal.

Verification Testing

of a Multi-GNSS RF Signal Simulator

GNSS signal and constellation simulators are crucial tools for designing and testing GNSS user equipment. But how does one test the test equipment itself? The authors explain how they verified the performance of a software simulator developed at Beihang University in Beijing.
