Summary on Grant Application Form
Satellite positioning via Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) such as GPS have been adopted in a wide range of applications including multi-modal transport navigation; synchronisation of telecommunications networks; geodetic survey; and asset management systems. However, to access increased accuracy, integrity and availability, the various weaknesses inherent in such systems such as signal attenuation and masking; error modelling and integrity monitoring must be addressed. This proposal will address these weaknesses and deliver `Centimetres Everywhere' with the appropriate levels of integrity for different applications. This is to be achieved through research leading to higher sensitivity algorithms for signal acquisition and tracking in harsh environments; exploitation of new signals; sensor error modelling; robust integrity monitoring algorithms; and the combined usage or integration of different sensor and data sources. It is envisaged that the models and algorithms developed will eventually be implemented in a `test bed' whose requirements and architecture will be defined within this project. The test bed is to be built in a subsequent project. The current vision is that the test bed should provide a benchmark for testing and referencing purposes with an open architecture to enable individual sensors to be added/removed/replaced as required.
