Abstract
A Communications, Navigation, and Networking reConfigurable Testbed (CoNNeCT) experiment is proposed to improve the performance of GPS during geomagnetic storms. There are two primary sources of degradation during a geomagnetic event?loss of phase coherency by the receiver and abrupt path delay changes due to total electron content (TEC). By monitoring the degradation at the ISS instead of the Earth's surface, better modeling and subsequently better mitigation of the effects will be achieved. A scintillation-hardening receiver is proposed to improve the accuracy and reliability during geomagnetic storms.
