Space Navigation with Digital Beam Steering GPS Receiver Technology

  title={Space Navigation with Digital Beam Steering GPS Receiver Technology},
  author={K. Gold and R. Silva and R. Worrell and A. Brown},
Space-based GPS technology presents several significant challenges over Earth based systems. These include visibility issues for rotating platforms, and tracking of GPS satellites from spacecraft that are in higher orbits than the GPS. Kinematic relative position in orbit also presents challenges in resolving carrier phase ambiguities in real time. NAVSYS has developed a digital GPS receiver that makes use of 3-dimensional Digital Beam Steering technology. This offers several advantages… Expand
