Galileo’s Surveying Potential: E5 Pseudorange Precision

March 1, 2012By

New Galileo signals have great potential for pseudorange-based surveying and mapping in both optimal open-sky conditions and suboptimal under-canopy environments. This article reviews the main features of Galileo’s E5 AltBOC and E1 CBOC signals, describes generation of realistic E5 and E1 pseudoranges with and without multipath sources, and presents anticipated horizontal positioning accuracy results, ranging from 4 centimeters (open-sky) to 14 centimeters (under-canopy) for E5/E1. read more
