Satellite Navigation Lab
By programming key components of a satellite navigation receiver, you will learn the essential steps to receive satellite signals and determine a position. Programming in MATLAB allows the use of real and simulated data to gain practical experience in the field of satellite navigation. You will get an understanding of the challenges that must be controlled in a satellite navigation receiver. This includes the description of orbits, the convergence of the position determination algorithms, acquiring and tracking signals and atmospheric effects. In addition you will work with a satellite navigation receiver hardware in order to capture real data that is processed by MATLAB tools.
In seven experiments you will implement a complete satellite navigation receiver in MATLAB. The experiments include beside others the following topics:
- Data capturing
- Satellite orbit and position
- Positioning algorithms
