With the launch of the compass-M1 satellite on 14 April 2007, China is set to become the latest entrant into global navigation satellite systems (GNSS). Understanding the interoperability and integration of the Chinese Compass with the current GNSS, namely the U.S. Global Positioning System (GPS), the European Galileo, and the Russian GLONASS, requires(More)
Redundant metering is frequently used to verify the integrity of billing data reported by advanced metering infrastructure, but the redundant measurement introduces a potential confidentiality leak. We propose a way to encode the redundant measurement at a bit rate below its entropy, so that it cannot be decoded from the encoded bits alone. In this way, we(More)
Synchronized voltage and current phasor measurements provided by phasor measurement units (PMUs) have the potential to augment power system monitoring, control, and protection functions. PMUs use the Global Positioning System (GPS) to synchronize measurements across a wide geographical area. Unfortunately, low-received-power, unencrypted civil GPS signals(More)
S E P T E M B E R / O C T O B E R 2 0 1 3 www.insidegnss.com During the past two decades, the Global Positioning System, together with other GNSSs, has become an essential element of the global information infrastructure, with myriad applications in almost every facets of modern businesses and lifestyles, including communication, energy distribution,(More)
With the launch of the Compass-M1 satellite on 14 April 2007, China is set to become the latest entrant into global navigation satellite systems (GNSS). The satellite, sometimes referred to as Compass-2 or Beidou-2, is the first of the Compass navigation satellite system (CNSS) that will provide global satellite navigation coverage. While China has launched(More)
| Critical government and industry sectors (such as law enforcement, transportation, communication, and finance) are growing increasingly dependent on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) for positioning, navigation, and timing. At the same time, the availability of low-cost GNSS jamming devices are presenting a serious threat to GNSS and increasing(More)
Signal in space (SIS) errors are a major error source for the Global Positioning System (GPS). They are defined as any errors related to satellite transmission, mainly satellite position and clock errors. A better understanding and characterization of the signal in space errors are essential for GPS integrity, because the SIS errors are a metric to(More)
