Bridge the gap between theoretical education and practical work experience with this hands-on guide to GNSS, which features: • A clear, practical presentation of GNSS theory, with emphasis on GPS and GLONASS • All the essential theory behind software receivers and signal simulators • Key applications in navigation and geophysics, including INS aiding, scintillation monitoring, earthquake studies and more • Physical explanations of various important phenomena, including the similarity of code delay and phase advance of GNSS signals, and negative cross-correlation between scintillation intensity and phase variations. Whether you are a practising engineer, a researcher or a student, you will gain a wealth of insights from the authors' 25 years of experience. You can explore numerous practical examples and case studies and get hands-on user experience with a bundled real-time software receiver, signal simulator and a set of signal data, enabling you to create your own GNSS lab for research or study.Read more
- Provides bundled real-time software receiver and signal simulator, enabling readers to get hands-on user experience

Reviews & endorsements
"This book provides an excellent introduction to satellite navigation and the technologies that make it possible. The authors set forth both fundamentals and practical aspects in a manner that allows even newcomers to GNSS to utilize it effectively. The topics covered in this book address the most important elements of current-day GNSS applications." - Sam Pullen, Stanford UniversitySee more reviews
"Now it is possible to learn how GNSS work
by doing " - Richard Langley, Professor of Geodesy and Precision Navigation, University of New Brunswick
"...the book includes free academic versions of a real-time software receiver and signal simulator... greatly exceeds what is found in other textbooks and by this reason it should be recommended. The authors use friendly and easy to understand language. This important feature definitely helps to follow the content of the book also by students and researchers without deeper knowledge of the GNSS technology. Also, the book is worth of recommending to all readers interested in GNSS signal processing, not limited to geoscientists only...I have found this book very interesting..." - Pawel Wielgosz, Institute of Geodesy, University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, Pure and Applied Geophysics
"...The authors write in an accessible, conversational, style with many enjoyable descriptions of historical context. This is most welcome, and makes for pleasant reading...The main content of the book is a valuable addition to the still-small universe of GNSS textbooks..." - Frank Van Diggelen, www.insidegnss.com
