GPS equatorial ionospheric scintillation signals simulation, characterization, and estimation
Strong equatorial ionospheric scintillation is characterized with simultaneous deep amplitude fading and fast phase fluctuations, which can severely degrade GNSS receiver performance and impact a variety of GNSS applications. This dissertation addresses the equatorial ionospheric scintillation effects on GNSS signals in three aspects: simulation, characterization, and estimation. The first part of the dissertation presents a physics-based, strong scintillation simulator that requires only two scintillation indicators as input parameters, with validation results using a large amount of real ...
