FPGAs and Parallel Architectures for Aerospace Applications Book Excerpt:

This book introduces the concepts of soft errors in FPGAs, as well as the motivation for using commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) FPGAs in mission-critical and remote applications, such as aerospace. The authors describe the effects of radiation in FPGAs, present a large set of soft-error mitigation techniques that can be applied in these circuits, as well as methods for qualifying these circuits under radiation. Coverage includes radiation effects in FPGAs, fault-tolerant techniques for FPGAs, use of COTS FPGAs in aerospace applications, experimental data of FPGAs under radiation, FPGA embedded processors under radiation and fault injection in FPGAs. Since dedicated parallel processing architectures such as GPUs have become more desirable in aerospace applications due to high computational power, GPU analysis under radiation is also discussed.

How to Design GPS GNSS Receivers Books 2 3 4 5 Book Excerpt:

The objective of this book is to provide you the reader a complete systems engineering treatment of GNSS. I am an expert with practical experience in GPS/GNSS design and similar areas that are addressed within the book. I provide a thorough, in-depth treatment of each topic. In this book, updated information on GPS and GLONASS is presented. In particular, descriptions of new satellites, such as GPS III and GLONASS K2 and their respective signal sets (e.g., GPS III L1C and GLONASS L3OC), are included. In this combined volume I provide in-depth technical descriptions of each emerging satellite navigation system: BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS, and NavIC. Dedicated chapters cover each system’s constellation configuration, satellites, ground control system and user equipment. Detailed satellite signal characteristics are also provided. Recently, I’ve heard from many engineers that they learned how GPS receivers work from this title. In this title, the design is included, and treatment of receivers is updated and expanded in several important ways. New material has been added on important receiver components, such as antennas and front-end electronics. The increased complexity of multiconstellation, multifrequency receivers, which are rapidly becoming the norm today, is addressed in detail. Other added features of this title are the clear step-by-step design process and associated trades required to develop a GNSS receiver, depending on the specific receiver application. This subject will be of great value to those readers who need to understand these concepts, either for their own design tasks or to aid their satellite navigation system engineering knowledge. To round out the discussion of receivers, updated treatments of interference, ionospheric scintillation, and multipath are provided along with new material on blockage from foliage, terrain, and man-made structures. Now there has been major developments in GNSS augmentations, including differential GNSS (DGNSS) systems, Precise Point Positioning (PPP) techniques, and the use of external sensors/networks. The numerous deployed or planned satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) networks are detailed, including WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, GAGAN, and SDCM, as are groundbased differential systems used for various applications. The use of PPP techniques has greatly increased in recent years, and the treatment in this title has been expanded accordingly. Material addressing integration of GNSS with other sensors has been thoroughly revamped, as has the treatment of network assistance as needed to reflect the evolution from 2G/3G to 4G cellular systems that now rely on multiconstellation GNSS receiver engines. While this title has generally been written for the engineering/scientific community, one of the series is devoted to GNSS markets and applications. Marketing projections (and the challenge thereof) are enumerated and discussion of the major applications is provided. As in all the series, this book is structured such that a reader with a general science background can learn the basics of GNSS. The reader with a stronger engineering/scientific background will be able to delve deeper and benefit from the more in-depth technical material. It is this ramp-up of mathematical/technical complexity along with the treatment of key topics that enables this publication to serve as a student text as well as a reference source.

Modification of a FPGA based GPS Receiver for Reflectometry Applications GNSS R Book Excerpt:

English: Lack of frequent and global global observations from space is currently a limiting factor Earth observation missions. In recent years, as a low-cost alternative, Global Navigation Satellite System's signals Reflectometry (GNSS-R) has stood a potential powerful remote sensing technique. The existing research has shown that GNSS-R has the potential to give environmental scientist a low-cost, wide-coverage measurement network that will allow to derive geophysical parameters such as ocean altimetry, sea state or soil moisture. This data has the potential to greatly increase our knowledge of the Earth's environmental processes. During the last ten years, the Remote Sensing Laboratory of the Department of Signal Theory and Communications at the Univeristat Politècnica de Catalunya, has worked on the design and implementation of the appropriate receivers in order to track and process this GNSS-R signals in real-time to avoid the storage of huge volumes of raw data. One of its most remarkable efforts is the Passive Advanced Unit for ocean monitoring (PAU) project. In this work, the possibility of adapting an existing Global Position System (GPS) receiver for GNSS-R applications is explored. This GPS receiver is the Namuru-GPL a open source software receiver implemented for the Namuru development platform developed by the University of New South Wales Satellite Navigation and Positioning Laboratory (SNAP). A modified version of the Namuru-GPL has been implemented. This modified version of the receiver has been able to simultaneous track a C/A L1-band signal and a delayed version of it that simulated a reflected signal with the associated longer propagation path. In addition, the receiver has measured pseudorange differences with a tested resolution up 3 m with a single measurment in a controlled experimental scenario, thus validating the Namuru-GPL capabilities for GNSS-R altimetry applications. In addition, a new Acquisition Module has been developed. This module dramatically reduces the Namuru-GPL receiver average acquisition time from a few minutes to 2.5 s approximately, thanks to implementing the parallel code acquisition method. Moreover, the Acquisition Module requires low hardware resources and generates Delay Doppler Maps (DDMs). All the development process stages, including validation through testing of these proposed designs are summarized within this work.
