Introduction of gps global navigation satellite systems

  1. 1. Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) Dr. Mahesh K. Jat Malaviya National Institute of Technology Jaipur
  2. 2. Introduction Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) involve satellites, ground stations and user equipment to determine positions around the world and are now used across many areas of society • GNSS GPS (USA), GLONASS (Russia), Galileo(Europe), Augmentation Systems (SBAS, GBAS), IRNS (India), QuasiZenth (Japan) • Fuelling growth during the next decade will be next generation GNSS that are currently being developed.
  3. 3. Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) • NAVSTAR – USA • GLONASS – Russians • Galileo – Europeans
  4. 4. GLONASS from Russia • GLONASS-M (L1 and L2 bands ) satellites with an improved 7-year design lifetime. • 2007 to 2008 planned to launch GLONASS-K satellites with improved performance, also transmit a third civil signal (L3). • Stated intention is to achieve a full 24-satellite constellation transmitting two civil signals by 2010. • Full constellation is planned to be broadcasting three sets of civil signals by 2012. • Indian Government announced at the end of 2004 that it would be contributing funds to assist Russia to revitalize GLONASS.
  5. 5. Galileo from the European Union • Constellation of 30 satellites, increased altitude (approximately 3000km higher than GPS) which will enable better signal availability at high latitudes. • Exact signal structure is still liable to change, • Galileo satellites broadcast signals compatible with the L1(E5a E5b) and L5 GPS signals. Galileo will also broadcast in a third frequency band at E6; which is not at the same frequency as L2/L2C of GPS.
  6. 6. • Current plan is to offer 5 levels of service: o Open Service uses the basic signals, free-to-air to the public with performance similar to GPS and GLONASS. o Safety of Life Service allows similar accuracy as the Open Service but with increased guarantees of the service, including improved integrity monitoring to warn users of any problems. o Public Regulated Service is aimed at public authorities providing civil protection and security (eg police), with encrypted access for users requiring a high level of performance and protection against interference or jamming. o Search and Rescue Service is designed to enhance current space-based services (such as COSPAS/SARSAT) by improving the time taken to respond to alert messages from distress beacons. o Commercial Service allows for tailored solutions for specific applications based on supplying better accuracy, improved service guarantees and higher data rates.

  22. 22. GPS Communication and Control
  23. 23. GPS Ground Control Stations
  24. 24. GPS involves 5 Basic Steps • Trilateration – Intersection of spheres • SV Ranging – Determining distance from SV • Timing – Why consistent, accurate clocks are required • Positioning – Knowing where SV is in space • Correction of errors – Correcting for ionospheric and tropospheric delays
  25. 25. Accurate Timing is the Key • SVs have highly accurate atomic clocks • Receivers have less accurate clocks • Measurements made using “nanoseconds” – 1 nanosecond = 1 billionth of a second • 1/100th of a second error could introduce error of 1,860 miles • Discrepancy between satellite and receiver clocks must be resolved • Fourth satellite is required to solve the 4 unknowns (X, Y, Z and receiver clock error)
  26. 26. Satellite Positioning • Also required in the equation to solve the 4 unknowns is the actual location of the satellite. • SV are in relatively stable orbits and constantly monitored on the ground • SV position is broadcast in the “ephemeris” data streamed down to receiver
  27. 27. How does GPS work? • Satellite ranging – Satellite locations – Satellite to user distance – Need four satellites to determine position • Distance measurement – Radio signal traveling at speed of light – Measure time from satellite to user • Low-tech simulation
  28. 28. How does GPS work? Pseudo-Random Code • Complex signal • Unique to each satellite • All satellites use same frequency • “Amplified” by information theory • Economical
  29. 29. Signal Structure • Each satellite transmits its own unique code • Two frequencies used – L1 Carrier 1575.42 MHz – L2 Carrier 1227.60 MHz • Codes – CA Code use L1 (civilian code) – P (Y) Code use L1 & L2 (military code)
  30. 30. How GPS works? • Range from each satellite calculated range = time delay X speed of light • Technique called trilateration is used to determine you position or “fix” – Intersection of spheres • At least 3 satellites required for 2D fix • However, 4 satellites should always be used – The 4th satellite used to compensate for inaccurate clock in GPS receivers – Yields much better accuracy and provides 3D fix
  31. 31. How does GPS work? • Distance to a satellite is determined by measuring how long a radio signal takes to reach us from that satellite. • To make the measurement we assume that both the satellite and our receiver are generating the same pseudo-random codes at exactly the same time. • By comparing how late the satellite's pseudo-random code appears compared to our receiver's code, we determine how long it took to reach us. • Multiply that travel time by the speed of light and you've got distance. • High-tech simulation
  32. 32. How does GPS work? • Accurate timing is the key to measuring distance to satellites. • Satellites are accurate because they have four atomic clocks ($100,000 each) on board. • Receiver clocks don't have to be too accurate because an extra satellite range measurement can remove errors.
  33. 33. How does GPS work? • To use the satellites as references for range measurements we need to know exactly where they are. • GPS satellites are so high up their orbits are very predictable. • All GPS receivers have an almanac programmed into their computers that tells them where in the sky each satellite is, moment by moment. • Minor variations in their orbits are measured by the Department of Defense. • The error information is sent to the satellites, to be transmitted along with the timing signals.
  34. 34. Position is Based on Time Signal leaves satellite at time “T” T + 3 T Signal is picked up by the receiver at time “T + 3” Distance between satellite and receiver = “3 times the speed of light”
  35. 35. Pseudo Random Noise Code Receiver PRN Satellite PRN Time Difference
  36. 36. What Time is It? Zulu Time Universal Coordinated Time GPS Time + 13* Local Time: AM and PM (adjusted for local time zone) Military Time Greenwich Mean Time (local time on a 24 hour clock) * GPS Time is ahead of UTC by approximately 13 seconds
  37. 37. Signal From One Satellite The receiver is somewhere on this sphere.
  38. 38. Signals From Two Satellites
  39. 39. Three Satellites (2D Positioning)
  40. 40. Triangulating Correct Position
  41. 41. Three Dimensional (3D) Positioning
  42. 42. GPS Position Determination
  43. 43. System Performance • Standard Positioning System – 100 meters horizontal accuracy – 156 meters vertical accuracy – Designed for civilian use – No user fee or restrictions • Precise Positioning System – 22 meters horizontal accuracy – 27.7 meters vertical accuracy – Designed for military use
  44. 44. System Performance Selective availability • Intentional degradation of signal • Controls availability of system’s full capabilities • Set to zero May 2000 • Reasons – Enhanced 911 service – Car navigation – Adoption of GPS time standard – Recreation
  45. 45. System Performance • The earth's ionosphere and atmosphere cause delays in the GPS signal that translate into position errors. • Some errors can be factored out using mathematics and modeling. • The configuration of the satellites in the sky can magnify other errors. • Differential GPS can reduce errors.
  46. 46. Differential Correction • Technique used to correct some of these errors • Referred to as “differential GPS” or DGPS • In DGPS, two GPS receivers are used • One receiver is located at an accurately surveyed point referred to as the “base station” • A correction is calculated by comparing the known location to the location determined by the GPS satellites • The correction is then applied to the other receiver’s (known as the “rover”) calculated position
  47. 47. DGPS Methods • Post-processing – Corrections performed after the data is collected – Special software required • Real-time – Corrections are performed while the data is being collected – Need special equipment to receive the DGPS signal
  48. 48. Wide Area Augmentation System - WAAS • New “real-time” DGPS • Satellite based • FAA initiative….now fully operational • Series of ~25 ground reference stations relay info to master control station • Master control station sends correction info to WAAS satellite – http://gps.faa.gov/programs/waas/howitworks.htm
  49. 49. GPS Accuracy Comparison Some common GPS devices used by FWS: GPS Device Autonomous WAAS DGPS Real-time DGPS Post-process DGPS Garmin GPSMap 76s ~ 10 - 15 ~3 3 1 - 3 Rockwell – PLGR Federal Users Only ~ 8 - 15 NA 3 NA Trimble - GeoXT ~ 10 ~3 1-3 Sub-meter Accuracy given in meters
  50. 50. GPS Accuracy Issues • Ways to improve the accuracy of your GPS collected data – Standardize data collection methods – Establish protocols for your applications – Employ averaging techniques – Perform mission planning – Utilize DGPS – Understand how the selection of datums and coordinate systems affect accuracy • GPS data collected in wrong datum can introduce ~200 meters of error into your GIS!
  51. 51. Application of GPS Technology • Location - determining a basic position • Navigation - getting from one location to another • Tracking - monitoring the movement of people and things • Mapping - creating maps of the world • Timing - bringing precise timing to the world
