Abstract

As one of the four global satellite navigation systems, Compass not only enhances satellite visibility and availability for positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) for users in China and the surrounding areas, but also improves PNT precision for global users. The improvements in satellite visibility and the dilution of precision are analyzed under GNSS compatibility and interoperation conditions. The contribution of the Compass satellite navigation system to global users, especially the benefits that users can acquire from the combination of Compass, GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo navigation systems, is analyzed using simulation data.
