|Abstract:||The landscape of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) signals is undergoing fundamental change. The parallel development of new, more robust and versatile signals along with two new GNSS systems with global reach is having a dramatic impact on the development of consumer and professional grade GNSS receivers. Receiver manufacturers are busily developing and implementing unique signal acquisition and tracking algorithms, advanced integrity monitoring algorithms, advanced multipath mitigation algorithms and a host of other enhancements in an effort to improve the performance of GNSS receivers and make their products stand out in a crowded field. The objective of this research is to develop a methodology for comparing the signal tracking performance of GNSS receivers as a way to evaluate the effectiveness of their unique designs and to compare the performance of various receivers. This research focuses mainly on the design, performance and evaluation of a GNSS receiver’s pseudorandom noise (PRN) code tracking loops.|
