Development of Signal Processing Techniques and Observables for the Improvement of Satellite Navigation Systems
Funder:Spanish Government
Start date:2001 December 28th
End date:2004 December 27th
SPCOM Participants:Pau Closas Gómez, Juan Fernández Rubio, Carles Fernandez Prades and Alejandro Ramirez Gonzalez
SPCOM Responsible:Juan Fernández Rubio


The objective of this project is to investigate a suite of techniques for the improvement of GPS/GNSS satellite navigation systems in varying scenarii: open, rural, urban and indoor. Three avenues will be undertaken: single- and multiple-antenna GNSS digital signal processing, GNSS observables processing and GNSS integration with other systems.
