  author={Paul T. Capozza and Brian J. Holland and Thomas M. Hopkinson and D. Moulin and Peter Pacheco and R. Rifkin},
Narrowband and partial-band interference can severely degrade the performance of GPS receivers. The use of digital signal processing in a receiver has been shown to provide protection against this type of interference in communications systems and has been proposed for application in future GPS systems. This paper discusses the measured effects of narrowband interference suppression on GPS receiver performance. Emphasis is placed on its effects on pseudorange measurements, since navigation…

GPS interference mitigation; Overview and experimental results

At a systems level both GPS and INS receivers may be tightly or loosely coupled to improve the accuracy and robustness of GPS in the presence of jamming signals.


The experimental results show that the frequency domain excision is a powerful approach to reject the narrowband interference.

Mitigation of Narrow-band Interference on Software Receivers Based on Spectrum Analysis

A narrow-band RFI mitigation algorithm based on spectrum analysis is fully discussed and tested with respect to acquisition, tracking and position fixing and some interference suppression strategies for spread spectrum systems were investigated.
