The article focuses on performance of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers in environment where intentional interference is present. First part is a general description of the GNSS systems. Secondly, types of positioning service disturbances are specified. Next, a scheme of measurement setup, which is used to evaluate the influence of… (More)
Since first travels by land or sea, it was necessary to determine position in an unknown environment. At the beginning methods were simple. They were based on the observation of characteristic points, in the case of shipping additional observations of the coastline. Then came a navigation based on astronomical methods (astronavigation). At the beginning of… (More)
The concept of wireless system of threats monitoring with self-organizing network of multipurpose data transfer nodes are presented. Two practical applications of this system are also presented. The first of these is the Global Wireless Monitoring System for Containers, and the second is the Mobile Monitoring System for Gas Air Pollution Measurements.
Nowadays the accuracy of existing location methods in networks is insufficient, particularly in emergency calls. Modification of chosen algorithm parameters leads to improvement of the accuracy of an MS position estimation. The most important parameter, which decides on location accuracy of an MS, is a true value of distance between a mobile station and a… (More)
The efficiency analysis a hyperbolic position location estimation in the multipath propagation environment in the wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA) interface was presented. Four, the most popular methods: Chan's , Foy's , Fang's  and Friedlander's  were considered. These algorithms enable the calculation of the geographical position… (More)
This paper presents a description of new global monitoring system for containers, with its layer-modular structure, as a solution for enhance security and efficiency of container transport with particular emphasis on the practical implementation of that system for maritime container terminals. Especially the Smart Container Module (SCM) architecture and its… (More)
