GPS & Galileo
Download the document below.
For those having difficulties visualizing techniques or seeking additional information, I highly recommend the download of the associated Powerpoint presentation aswell.
"Satellites already play a significant role in our daily lives, aiding communication, exploration and research. In the future, we will undoubtedly see their influence grow. GPS is perhaps one of satellite's most successful applications, and for consumers, receivers are becoming ever more affordable and reliable. The recent signing of a cooperative agreement between the United States and the European Union will expand this system, laying the foundation for a compatible and interoperable Global Navigation Satellite System, the GNSS. With this relatively young technology, improved accuracy, better reception and altogether new applications lie in wait for us in the near future."

This article scored me a grade of 9 out of 10.
If you are interested in this topic, I urge you to work your way through it. Personally, I enjoyed researching GNSS very much.

It was brought to my attention that the file was corrupt. This must have happened while moving the site a few months back, but I never noticed.
The problem has been fixed and the file can now be downloaded again.

Dear Paul,
Hello from a student in The TEchnical University of Sofia, Bulgaria.
I study last year " Aeronautical Engineering and Technologies" + Avionics.
My prof. of "Navigation" asked me and another student , together with me, to make a report on GPS, or comparison of GPS and Galileo....something like co-project, as I should speak for GPS in more details. After searching the internet, I found your site...and I like it very much - especially http://paul.luminos.nl/document/6, which is very much close to my theme. I want to thank you about this great work, and would be happy if you have additional materials and documents - presentations...etc... and if it is not bothering you - to send me these to: bojkins@abv.bg
Again, thank you, and I will look forward to your reply!
Have a nice day!
Regards,
:) Bozhidara

Thank you for the kind words!
I only have three documents on the topic:
If you want to read more, I urge you to follow the references in the first article. Several of them point to quite informative websites that have much more in-depth information.
Other than that, I'm afraid I can't be of much help. Although I find Aeronautics very interesting, I myself am a computer sciences student that has no background into GNSS except this single research topic.
I wish you the best of luck, and am glad I could help!

I'm very interested in going through the 30 minutes presentation, but unfortunately it seems to be corrupted? (I'm running MAC Office 2008). In couple of your early posts you had mentioned the file might be corrupted. Do you know if this is still the problem? I will attempt to run the ppt when I get a hold of a PC. Thanks for the help.

The download works just fine. I haven't tried it on Office for Mac; perhaps that's the problem. If you would rather have it in PDF format, let me know and I'll upload it.
