In the next five to ten years, the evolution of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSSs) will have a revolutionary impact on the positioning performance. More GNSSs will become available with improved signal characteristics. At the same time, enhancement of receiver technology and algorithms is ongoing. In light of these developments, it is investigated(More)
In this contribution, we study the dependence of the bootstrapped success rate on the precision of the GNSS carrier phase ambiguities. Integer boot-strapping is, because of its ease of computation, a popular method for resolving the integer ambiguities. The method is however known to be suboptimal, because it only takes part of the information from the(More)
In this paper, a new framework is proposed for least-squares localization based on estimated ranges, covering time-difference-of-arrival (TDoA), time-of-arrival (ToA), and received signal strength (RSS) cases. The multidimensional nonlinear localization problem is first transformed to a lower dimension and then solved iteratively. Within the proposed(More)
In this paper, the global navigation satellite system (GNSS) precise point positioning (PPP) concept is generalized to array-aided PPP (A-PPP). A-PPP is a measurement concept that uses GNSS data, from multiple antennas in an array of known geometry, to realize improved GNSS parameter estimation (position, attitude, time and atmospheric delays). The concept(More)
The Chinese BeiDou system (BDS), having different types of satellites, is an important addition to the ever growing system of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). It consists of Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) satellites, Inclined Geosynchronous Satellite Orbit (IGSO) satellites and Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellites. This paper investigates the(More)
Integer ambiguity resolution is the process of estimating the unknown ambiguities of carrier-phase observables as integers. It applies to a wide range of interferometric applications of which Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) precise positioning is a prominent example. GNSS precise positioning can be accomplished anytime and anywhere on Earth,(More)
The proliferation of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) paves the way for an increasing number of applications in positioning, guidance and navigation. GNSS-based attitude determination is one of such an important and promising application. In this contribution we explore the potential of GNSS-based attitude determination for Low Earth orbiting(More)
Direct geo-referencing is an efficient methodology for the fast acquisition of 3D spatial data. It requires the fusion of spatial data acquisition sensors with navigation sensors, such as Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers. In this contribution, we consider an integrated GNSS navigation system to provide estimates of the position and(More)
