Abstract
Providing accurate PVT (Position, Velocity and Time) information is very critical for systems like Joint Precision Approach and Landing System (JPALS). JPALS is a key component enabling U.S. military forces to be highly mobile and capable of "rapid response" on a global basis to a wide range of military scenarios. JPALS must remain operational throughout a range of threat environments, and with performance requirements tailored to supporting a highly mobile force at all locations, including an austere forward operating area worldwide. In addition of the weak signal power from GPS satellites, JPALS-equipped aircraft are expected to operate in the presence of significant radio frequency interference (RFI) and low elevation look angles of GPS satellites. To address this issue, Applied EM is proposing an innovative non-planar GPS antenna array solution with advanced adaptive signal processing techniques. This novel design will provide anti-jamming protection against low elevation angle jammers and maintain reception at the same time to provide highly accurate navigation results.
