 Synopsis:

The course is focused on the field of navigation systems and their practical applications. It covers GNSS technology
including definition of coordinate systems, explanation of the physical problems associated with satellite navigation, and
positioning methods. On the other hand, only one lecture is devoted to the design of GNSS receivers, since the issue of
radio receivers is in details described in other master's course Architecture of Radio Receivers and Transmitters. The GNSS
area is further extended to the field of inertial navigation including the navigation equations and mechanization of the
calculation, inertial sensors and aiding systems/sensors, e.g. pressure based altimeters, magnetometer, Lidars, ultrasonic
transducers, radars, etc. The focus is paid on detailed data fusion practical tasks for estimating position, velocity and
attitude in outdoor/indoor environment.
