GPS Stochastic Modelling: Signal Quality Measures and ARMA Processes

Overview

Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), such as GPS, have become an efficient, reliable and standard tool for a wide range of applications. However, when processing GNSS data, the shastic model characterising the precision of observations and the correlations between them is usually simplified and incomplete, leading to overly optimistic accuracy estimates.

This work extends the shastic model using signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) measurements and time series analysis of ...

Overview

Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), such as GPS, have become an efficient, reliable and standard tool for a wide range of applications. However, when processing GNSS data, the shastic model characterising the precision of observations and the correlations between them is usually simplified and incomplete, leading to overly optimistic accuracy estimates.

This work extends the shastic model using signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) measurements and time series analysis of observation residuals. The proposed SNR-based observation weighting model significantly improves the results of GPS data analysis, while the temporal correlation of GPS observation noise can be efficiently described by means of autoregressive moving average (ARMA) processes. Furthermore, this work includes an up-to-date overview of the GNSS error effects and a comprehensive description of various mathematical methods.

Meet the Author

Xiaoguang Luo is currently a research associate at the Geodetic Institute of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany. He received his Ph.D. in Geodesy and Geoinformatics from KIT in 2012. He is interested in analysing the shastic model, atmospheric and site-specific effects of GNSS observations, with a special focus on statistical testing and time series modelling.
