Summary : The objective of this book is to provide you the reader a complete systems engineering treatment of GNSS. I am an expert with practical experience in GPS/GNSS design and similar areas that are addressed within the book. I provide a thorough, in-depth treatment of each topic. Within this and the rest of the series, updated information on GPS and GLONASS is presented. In particular, descriptions of new satellites, such as GPS III and GLONASS K2 and their respective signal sets (e.g., GPS III L1C and GLONASS L3OC), are included. In this part I are in-depth technical descriptions of each emerging satellite navigation system: BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS, and NavIC. Dedicated chapters cover each system's constellation configuration, satellites, ground control system and user equipment. Detailed satellite signal characteristics are also provided. Recently, I've heard from many engineers that they learned how GPS receivers work from this title. In this title, the design is included, and treatment of receivers is updated and expanded in several important ways. New material has been added on important receiver components, such as antennas and front-end electronics. The increased complexity of multiconstellation, multifrequency receivers, which are rapidly becoming the norm today, is addressed in detail. Other added features of this title are the clear step-by-step design process and associated trades required to develop a GNSS receiver, depending on the specific receiver application. This subject will be of great value to those readers who need to understand these concepts, either for their own design tasks or to aid their satellite navigation system engineering knowledge. To round out the discussion of receivers, updated treatments of interference, ionospheric scintillation, and multipath are provided along with new material on blockage from foliage, terrain, and man-made structures. Now there has been major developments in GNSS augmentations, including differential GNSS (DGNSS) systems, Precise Point Positioning (PPP) techniques, and the use of external sensors/networks. The numerous deployed or planned satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) networks are detailed, including WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, GAGAN, and SDCM, as are groundbased differential systems used for various applications. The use of PPP techniques has greatly increased in recent years, and the treatment in this title has been expanded accordingly. Material addressing integration of GNSS with other sensors has been thoroughly revamped, as has the treatment of network assistance as needed to reflect the evolution from 2G/3G to 4G cellular systems that now rely on multiconstellation GNSS receiver engines. While this title has generally been written for the engineering/scientific community, one of the series is devoted to GNSS markets and applications. Marketing projections (and the challenge thereof) are enumerated and discussion of the major applications is provided. As in the other series, this book is structured such that a reader with a general science background can learn the basics of GNSS. The reader with a stronger engineering/scientific background will be able to delve deeper and benefit from the more in-depth technical material. It is this ramp-up of mathematical/technical complexity along with the treatment of key topics that enables this publication to serve as a student text as well as a reference source.

Summary : Today, satellite navigation offers convenient alternative to terrestrial and stellar navigation methods that is not only ubiquitous and easy to operate but also available day and night. The radio navigation technology, first appeared in the 1930s and matured in the 1940s, did not take off until the late 1960s and 1970s with the launch of the first navigation satellites by the US Naval and Air Forces, resulting from the NAVSTAR GPS program. The end user navigation equipment, bulky and expensive at the beginning, did not emerge until the microprocessor became viable during the late 1970s. Now-a-day three other global navigation satellite systems are fully or partially operational: the Russian GLONASS, the European Union Galileo, and the Chinese BeiDou. Where does the future lie? Probably in a network of global satellite navigation systems, with increase in satellite coverage and improved accuracy, integrity, and reliability, as these systems further mature. End user equipment will continue to be smaller, more accurate and cheaper. Yet in many respects, satellite navigation systems owe most to the old-time stellar navigation, by keeping man look up to the sky for help.

Summary : Fifty years after Sputnik, artificial satellites have become indispensable monitors in many areas, such as economics, meteorology, telecommunications, navigation and remote sensing. The specific orbits are important for the proper functioning of the satellites. This book discusses the great variety of satellite orbits, both in shape (circular to highly elliptical) and properties (geostationary, Sun-synchronous, etc.). This volume starts with an introduction into geodesy. This is followed by a presentation of the fundamental equations of mechanics to explain and demonstrate the properties for all types of orbits. Numerous examples are included, obtained through IXION software developed by the author. The book also includes an exposition of the historical background that is necessary to help the reader understand the main stages of scientific thought from Kepler to GPS. This book is intended for researchers, teachers and students working in the field of satellite technology. Engineers, geographers and all those involved in space exploration will find this information valuable. Michel Capderou’s book is an essential treatise in orbital mechanics for all students, lecturers and practitioners in this field, as well as other aerospace systems engineers. —Charles Elachi, Director, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
