Chip Transition-Edge Based Signal Tracking for Ultra-Precise GNSS Monitoring Applications
This novel concept of monitoring chip asymmetry can extend the state of the art in the areas of GNSS signal-quality monitoring and authentication. Tracking GNSS signals using their underlying spreading sequence chip transition edges reveals positive versus negative chip asymmetries that are characteristic to each satellite. This asymmetry is due to various types of natural signal deformation that is known to occur within the satellite’s signal generation and transmission hardware. read more
