AT76.9029 Introduction to Global Navigation Satellite Systems 1(1-0)
Course Objective: The aim of this course is to introduce the principles of the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and to demonstrate its applications to various aspects of location-based services and Earth sciences. GNSS are used now in all of transportation systems including aviation, maritime, railroad and highway. Satellite positioning also plays critical roles in telecommunications, land surveying, law enforcement, emergency response, precision agriculture, mining, finance, and scientific research. As the scope of GNSS has expanded, the systems continue to evolve.
Learning Outcomes: Students completing the requirements of the course should be able to
1. Understand fundamental theory and applications of radio navigation with the Multi-GNSS.
2. Understand satellite orbit theory, GNSS signal structure, point positioning with pseudorange, real-time kinematic positioning with carrier phase, dilution of precision, atmospheric effect on GNSS signals.
3. Perform calculation on position, Dilution of precision (DOP) using RTKLIB
