Abstract:

GPS systems suffer from vulnerabilities that are rooted in poor clocking abilities as a result of substandard PLL technology. Gain ICs has invented the world"s fastest Phase Locked Loop (PLL) technology which vastly improves signal transmission in terms of signal to noise ratio (SNR), transmission distance, spectral efficiency, and reduced vulnerability to interference and jamming. The signal quality is improved to a point where less power is required to transmit thus reducing system size and generated heat while improving overall reliability. A solution is proposed that will offer: - Reductions in sustainment costs for the GPS constellation - Enhanced signal security - Enhanced robustness of the constellation - Reduced time to first fix - Enhanced accuracy - Enhanced canyon and urban canyon performance - Reduced jammer susceptibility The proposed solution is based on a new technology that increases signal clocking speeds to a point where only Gain ICs technology can lock on and demodulate a transmitted signal.
