About this book


This book covers multi-band Galileo receivers (especially E1-E5 bands of Galileo) and addresses all receiver building blocks, from the antenna and front end, through details of the baseband receiver processing blocks, up to the navigation processing, including the Galileo message structure and Position, Velocity, Time (PVT) computation. Moreover, hybridization solutions with communications systems for improved localization are discussed and an open-source GNSS receiver platform (available for download) developed at Tampere University of Technology (TUT) is addressed in detail.

• Takes a holistic approach to GALILEO and related systems, such as EGNOS and hybrid solutions on mobile phones;
• Provides an invaluable reference to Binary Offset Carrier modulations and related families, which are some of the trademarks of GALILEO;
• Includes a detailed survey of GALILEO receiver research in Europe and existing software-defined radio (SDR) GALILEO receiver implementations;
• Addresses the multiple challenges in acquisition and tracking of GALILEO signals, including multipaths, ambiguities, and low carrier-to-noise ratios;
• Offers insight into the design of a Software Defined GALILEO receiver;
• Enables readers to have a full image of the processing steps involved in a GALILEO receiver.
