Study of Evaluation of GPS/BeiDou Combination Regional Navigation Satellite System

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 297)


2020 with more than 30 satellites, and will provide global coverage. The paper compares Beidou open service signal B1 with conventional GPS signal L1. B1 has better performance in terms of multipath error and cross correlation noise. The paper uses the Beidou/GPS observations of the Beidou Experimental Tracking Stations to realize the Beidou and Beidou/GPS static and kinematic precise point positioning (PPP). The results will show that the combined system allows for improved integer ambiguity success rates, satellite visibility and reliability as compared to the systems separately.
