Global Positioning System: Signals, Measurements and Performance, Revised Second Edition (Paperback)
NOTE: This is the paperback version. The hardcover version is no longer available.
Pratap Misra and Per Enge
This revised second edition of this widely praised book offers a comprehensive introduction to GPS: the system, signals, receivers, measurements, and algorithms for estimation of position, velocity, and time. It is intended as a textbook for a senior- or graduate-level engineering course and a self-study guide for practicing engineers.
The book is divided into four parts. Part I introduces the basic framework for a global navigation satellite system, including coordinate frames, time references, and satellite orbits, and provides an overview of GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo. Part II describes the fruits of GPS: estimation of position, velocity, and time. Part III discusses the ingenious structure of the GPS signals. Part IV introduces the signal processing steps required to extract the necessary measurements form these signals, and explores the challenges posed by signal blockage and RFI.
To give the student a hands-on experience with GPS, this book includes a CD-ROM with a number of GPS data sets from several sites. A set of of homework problems requires the student to write simple MATLAB code to analyze these data.
Praise for the Revised Second Edition
“I have been using the book [Global Positioning System: Signals, Measurements & Performance, Revised Second Edition (Hardcover), by Pratap Misra and Per Enge] for years since it was published. The book is great. I love it. It’s of very high quality, and a great pleasure to read. I use it in my research work and also for teaching.
Hari Hablani, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Aerospace Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (former Boeing Technical Fellow, Huntington Beach, California)
Praise for the First Edition
“[A]n excellent graduate level textbook on GPS crafted by two master teachers. The authors have succeeded in providing broad coverage of the workings of GPS without missing important details, and have done so in a coherent and readable form.”
Professor Penina Axlerad, University of Colorado at Boulder
Publisher: Ganga-Jamuna Press
Recommended for Course 346 attendees, and other engineers ready to study GPS from A to Z, this was written as a textbook by Dr. Per Enge and Dr. Pratap Misra for use in their graduate courses.
