Abstract:

ABSTRACT: This proposal is for the development of a novel algorithm to utilize commercially available signals of opportunity (SoOP) received by several participating cooperative nodes to derive the location of those nodes. The use of multiple transceiver devices within a network possessing the capability to receive and transmit radio/TV signals can enable a new method of positioning and navigation. Synchronization of the receiver nodes or of the commercial broadcast towers is not necessary for this method to be effective, thereby opening up an existing planet-wide resource with an established and ubiquitous infrastructure to be used for localization. BENEFIT: First responders operating in a disaster area will benefit from the proposed system.
