The growth of GPS over that past decade has been staggering. More and more electrical engineers are migrating towards work in this field and require knowledge of the important GPS/GNSS principles. That's why Artech House decided the time was right to put this classic Prentice Hall title back into print. Although technology has progressed at a remarkable pace in the decade and a half since its publication, the principles of navigation systems, well described in this book, are immutable. The book's reputation as an essential reference has led to engineers scouring the Internet looking for used copies. Finally back in print, this popular resource provides you with authoritative guidance on everything from the fundamentals of terrestrial navigation, error calculations, and direction finding - to satellite orbits and geometry, satellite navigation principles, and spread spectrum. Moreover, the book provides you with concise descriptions of key navigation systems developed decades ago that are still widely in use - information that is extremely hard to find.
