Low-latitude ionospheric scintillation signal simulation, characterization, and detection on GPS signals
Severe signal fluctuations during ionospheric scintillation poses a threat to GNSS signal tracking and degrades position, navigation, and timing solution accuracy, especially in low-latitude regions. To understand the behavior of ionospheric scintillation better, this dissertation research presents several methods regarding scintillation signal simulation, signal characterization and signal detection. The signal simulation is based on the two-dimensional two-component power-law phase screen theory, which is capable of simulating multi-frequency GPS scintillation signals for both stationary and ...
