Master's programme (M.Sc.) in GPS Technology
1st semester

2nd semester, 3rd semester

THEME GPS Fundamentals and Algorithms
PERIOD February 1 - June 30
  • To enable the students to perform an analysis and advanced use of basic GPS equipment (hardware and/or software), both with respect to design and functionality
  • To give the student a comprehension of the available GPS observations and algorithms for processing them to obtain estimates of position and velocity
  • To provide the student with a comprehension of coordinate frames and systems
  • To enable the student to perform simulation of components in GPS
CONTENT The project is to be based on a specific GPS application. GPS is analyzed with respect to the chosen application and a block diagram is established. One sub-problem is selected for thorough investigation. Essential parts of GPS are modeled via establishment of a simulation model. A simulation model is created for those parts of GPS that are relevant to the chosen problem. Different solution strategies are investigated and compared. The chosen solution is to be implemented and tested, either by computer simulation, digital signal processor implementation or dedicated hardware.
