Pseudorange Multipath Mitigation By Means of Multipath Monitoring and De-Weighting

  title={Pseudorange Multipath Mitigation By Means of Multipath Monitoring and De-Weighting},
  author={Sunil Bisnath and Richard B. Langley},
The management of pseudorange multipath in GPS software processing ranges from total ignorance of the phenomenon to complex schemes for the estimation of the multipath signal. The former can cause significant parameter estimation degradation and the latter cannot necessarily provide accurate estimates. Therefore an alternative method is proposed here, which includes endeavouring to monitor the multipath signal and deweight the affected observations based on a sentinel observable. The objectives… 

Reduction of PPP convergence period through pseudorange multipath and noise mitigation

Pseudorange multipath and pseudorange noise are the largest remaining unmanaged error sources in PPP. It is proposed that by reducing the effects of multipath and noise on the pseudorange observable,

Single Frequency Multipath Mitigation Based On Wavelet Analysis

This paper proposes an algorithm which picks up the best satellites (when there are more than four satellites in view) based on wavelet analysis for calculating a position and shows significant improvement in variance of the estimated positions and a normalization of the data scatter-distribution was observed.

A Statistical Multipath Detector for Antenna Array Based GNSS Receivers

A statistical multipath detector based on an antenna array GNSS receiver that resorts to the estimated noise covariance matrix to compute a statistic that measures the dispersion of its eigenvalues, with the resulting detector being Constant False Alarm Rate.

Constant False Alarm Rate Multipath Detector for Multiple Antenna based GNSS Receivers

The multipath detection method proposed in this paper, targeted at multiple antenna GNSS receivers, is based on the relation between the arithmetic and the geometric means of the covariance matrix eigenvalues, and allows to set detection thresholds independently of the incoming noise power by adjusting the false alarm probability.

Reduction of Precise Point Positioning Convergence Period

It is proposed that by reducing the effects of multipath and noise on the pseudorange observable, accurate estimates of carrierphase float ambiguities will be attained sooner, thus reducing the convergence period of PPP.

GPS multipath detection based on sequence of successive-time double-differences

The proposed channelwise test statistic is particularly efficient in multipath detection and operationally advantageous: it requires only basic observables, it requires no precomputation of receiver position, it has standard /spl chi//sup 2/-distributions, and it can reduce the detection resolution by increasing the number of successive measurements.

Robust Positioning in the Presence of Multipath and NLOS GNSS Signals

Nonline-of-sight (NLOS) reception occurs when the direct path from the transmitter to the receiver is blocked and signals are received only via a reflected path, while multipath interference occurs when a signal is received via multiple paths.

An alternative method for detection and mitigation of static multipath in L1 carrier phase measurements.

Multipath affects the Global Positioning System measurements in different ways. For example, in the receiver, multipath distorts the correla tion function hampering its peak detection in the delay
