Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book is devoted to this subject [GPS] and at the same time to [the] Galileo System, a forthcoming European satellite-based navigation system. Both of them belong to the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). The exposition is given in the frame of Software-defined Radios, which designates a technology which is based on a flexible open-architecture receiver that permits [building] a dynamic connection of various modules. The work of this platform is described in a MATLAB coding language...It is worthy to mention that Windows and LINUX can be used. The book is intended for applied mathematicians, electrical engineers, geodesists and graduate students as a reference book as well for self-study."   —Zentralblatt MATH

"This excellent book will give you the mathematical fundamentals for software-based GPS … . The included MATLAB source code can be used to crunch the collected data to solve for position. This low level processing gives the user a keen insight into the signal processing of a GPS receiver. The provided algorithms encourage user modification to attempt to improved and design next generation GPS receivers."   —SparkFun Electronics

From the Back Cover

Satellite navigation receivers are used to receive, process, and decode space-based navigation signals, such as those provided by the GPS constellation of satellites. There is an increasing need for a unified open platform that will enable enhanced receiver development and design, as well as cost-effective testing procedures for various applications. This book provide hands-on exploration of new technologies in this rapidly growing field.
One of the unique features of the work is the interactive approach used, giving readers the ability to construct their own Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) receivers. To construct such a reconfigurable receiver with a wide range of applications, the authors discuss receiver architecture based on software-defined radio (SDR) techniques. The presentation unfolds in a systematic, user-friendly style and goes from the basics to cutting-edge research.
Additional features and topics include:
* Presentation of basic signal structures used in GPS and Galileo, the European satellite navigation system
* Design and implementation of a GPS signal generator
* Presentation and analysis of different methods of signal acquisition—serial search; parallel-frequency space search; and parallel-code phase search—as well as code/carrier tracking and navigation data decoding
* A complete GPS software receiver implemented using MATLAB code as well as GPS and GIOVE-A signal records—allowing readers to change various parameters and immediately see their effects
* MATLAB-based exercises
* A hands-on method of testing the material covered in the book: supplementary front-end hardware equipment—which may be purchased at http://ccar.colorado.edu/gnss—enables readers working on a Windows or LINUX system to generate real-world data by converting analog signals to digital signals
* Supplementary course material for instructors available at http://gps.aau.dk/softgps
* Bibliography of recent results and comprehensive index
The book is aimed at applied mathematicians, electrical engineers, geodesists, and graduate students. It may be used as a textbook in various GPS technology and signal processing courses, or as a self-study reference for anyone working with satellite navigation receivers.

Format: Paperback
The table of contents of this book are reported below.

1. Signals and Systems

2. GPS Signal

3. Galileo Signal

4. GNSS Antennas and Front-Ends

5. GNSS Receiver Operation Overview

6. Acquisition

7. Carrier and Code Tracking

8. Data Processing and Positioning

9. Matlab Code

10. GNSS Signal Simulation

After a brief introduction on the basic elements of signal processing theory, this book gives an overview of GPS and Galileo signals. Then, the architectural design of a GNSS receiver is provided showing the hardware design (a front-end connect to a standard PC by USB) and focusing on the software approach and typical algorithms that are implemented to recover synchronisms.

The last two chapters contain a set of Matlab algorithms to track and process GPS and Galileo L1 data. The final result is a simple and useful tool for beginners and a good reference for expert reader.

Excellent book however the Kindle version does not include the companion DVD. A large strength of this book is the DVD and the example code that it contains.

Format: Paperback
A well written book. Excessively concise. Too much material on the RF Front-end, when the main expectable focus would be the base-band. The book does, however, serve its purpose well.

A concise book for beginners who try to design a simple GNSS receiver. It provides a good introduction into GNSS signal structure and receiver channels operation. Yet it lacks some important topics and cannot serve as a complete textbook:
1. The basic principles of GNSS are not discussed which is very confusing for a beginner without any prior knowledge of the subject.
2. The book is written by several authors and thus contains many unnecessary repetitions and changes in mathematical notation.
3. The chapter about multipath is written very poorly.
4. The nature of ionospheric and tropospheric corrections is not discussed at all.

Great reference for anyone trying to create a GPS SDR. Very easy to read even for the beginner in the area, but still covers most everything you need to know to put together a basic SDR in Matlab. The DVD with code examples is extremely useful for someone starting out in the area.
