Paper Abstract

It is well known that code and carrier-phase multipath, which has been under study for over two decades, is the limiting error sources in high-precision differential GPS applications. In virtually every study, however, the effects of autocorrelation function are considered little. This article focuses on the bounds of code and carrier-phase multipath error in terms of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) signals autocorrelation functions, which result from a fundamental theoretical description and mathematical modeling of GNSS receiver. Firstly, an overview of the characteristics of the BOC (Binary Offset Carrier) signal ACF (autocorrelation function) is given in the paper. The impact on the DLL (delay-lock loop) and PLL (phase lock loop) discriminator functions are derived in the followed section and consequently a general description of multipath errors are obtained for the BOC signals. This quantifies the influence of limited bandwidth on receiver tracking error due to multipath. Finally, the simulation results show a distinct change in the error envelope for BOC signals from which has been got using current GPS C/A code signal.
