Multipath Reducing GPS Receiver and Antenna
Toyon Research Corporation proposes to design an improved GPS receiver and GPS antenna to reduce installation-dependent errors due to multipath. To develop the receiver, we will prototype and implement various interference cancellation algorithms on a software-defined radio simulation toolkit and hardware testbed. We will design an antenna complementary to this receiver that will suppress signals incident at angles at or near the horizon. Our unique antenna pattern shaping methodology will allow very precise control over the elevation angle coverage of the antenna. Together, this receiver and antenna will yield improved positioning in the presence of multipath signals compared to currently available technology.
