Journal of Spatial Science

Special Issue: Multi-GNSS processing, positioning and applications

Deadline: 1 May 2019

Is your research ready to make an impact?

In the past few decades the Global Positioning System (GPS) has been the number one positioning tool in a range of Geodesy and Geophysics applications. The emerging Regional and Global Navigation Satellite Systems (RNSSs/GNSSs) can enhance a wide range of positioning applications. GPS modernization from dual-frequency to triple-frequency signals has lately also been complemented by global GLONASS, Galileo and BDS as well as regional QZSS and IRNSS.

By 2024 it is expected that we will have access to more than 110 satellites in a multi-GNSS model transmitting their signals on a range of different frequencies. This will significantly improve current dual-frequency GPS positioning as well as non-positioning applications, such as atmospheric and timing applications. Rigorous models and algorithms are however needed so as to link and integrate such multi-frequency, multi-GNSS signals to the estimable parameters of interest.

We invite authors to submit either original research or review articles that will stimulate continuing efforts towards multi-GNSS processing, positioning and applications. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Multi-GNSS inter-system, inter- and intra-frequency biases, and their effects on the ambiguity resolution performance.
  • Single-/multi-frequency and multi-GNSS positioning and non-positioning applications, while making use of high-grade and low-cost receiver and antenna equipment (including smartphones).
  • Reliability analysis (ARAIM/DIA) using multi-GNSS models and single-/ multiple-frequencies.
  • Ionospheric and tropospheric delay estimation based on multi-GNSS and single-/multi-frequency data.
  • Multi-GNSS network- and PPP-RTK applications, and National Positioning Infrastructure (NPI) developments.
