Satellite Navigation Systems from the Author: Michael J Rycroft. T. Ito, International Space University, Strasbourg Central Campus, 1 Rue Jean Dominique Cassini, Parc d'Innovation, 67400 lllkirch-Graffenstaden, France e-mail: [email protected] isunet. edu M. J. Rycroft, CAESAR Consultancy, 35 Millington Road, Cambridge CB3 9HW, UK e-mail: Michael. J. Rycroft®ukgateway. net As Symposium Committee Chair for the 2003 International Space University (ISU) Symposium, and Editor of this Proceedings volume, respectively, we write this introduction. The success of previous ISU symposia suggests that the ISU has developed a unique and winning formula for a novel type of symposium. The characteristics of ISU symposia are that they: • Adopt a broad, and interdisciplinary, perspective • Address all aspects of the subject, ranging from policy, business, organisational, and legal issues to technical and scientific topics • Foster a constructive dialogue among very different sectors of the space community, and • Allow ample time for interactive discussions. The present Symposium is no exception. It considers the very timely topic of space-based systems for global positioning and navigation, ranging from the GPS system developed by the US military to the Russian GLONASS system, and on to the future European Galileo system. Other nations are planning regional augmentation systems.

Engineering Satellite Based Navigation And Timing from the Author: John W. Betz. This is the first text that provides an integrated and balanced view of all satellite-based navigation and timing (satnav) systems attractive to an international readership interested not only in GPS but also other systems such as GLONASS (Russia) and Galileo (European Space Agency. It provides a comprehensive collection of systems engineering tools, consistent and current descriptions of existing and planned systems and their signals, detailed description of receiver processing techniques and their performance, and integrated introduction of special topics. Each chapter is followed by a set of review problems that are divided into theoretical (how key results in the chapter are obtained and extended), and applied (how to use the information presented in practical situations). A solutions manual will be available.
