About the book

GPS NAVIGATION: Principles and Applications sets forth the application of GPS navigation and its basic principles. The book is divided into ten chapters. The first three chapters present the development, system structure, space-time reference frame for navigation and positioning, and the satellite’s kinematic parameters of global positioning system (GPS). The fourth chapter introduces the broadcast signals of GPS satellites. The fifth, sixth and seventh chapter analyses the observation equation and the positioning theory of dynamic and static for GPS navigation and positioning. The eighth chapter gives the GPS carrier speed and attitude measurement methods. The ninth chapter focuses on the use of Kalman filter for GPS and INS integrated methods and some typical programs. GPS / INS integrated navigation system is the more ideal system in the national defence. The tenth chapter introduces some application knowledge of the GPS technology in some more important area.
