Provides engineers who use and design GPS systems with a reference on the operational principles guiding this technology, with an emphasis on software-based signal processing. Covers all aspects of receiver technology as well as relevant navigation schemes, concentrating on civilian C/A code used by commercial GPS receivers, rather than military code. Describes GPS basics and satellites, examines signal structure and tracking, and presents mathematical formulas for calculating a user's position. Illustrates application of important equations using computer programs, and explains how to build hardware to collect digitized data for a software GPS receiver. The author is a researcher at the Air Force Research Laboratory, Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
