Abstract: In this contribution, a comprehensive overview of multipath propagation and its effects on current and future L-band terrestrial radionavigation devices is given. The line-of-sight and multipath propagation between a ground station transmitter and an aircraft is characterized based on measurement data. The paper presents different methods to mitigate effects of multipath propagation and limit the resulting errors.
