Maximizing Aviation Benefits from Satellite Navigation

The research objective is to provide vertical guidance for approaching aircraft worldwide based on the new signals from modernized global positioning systems (GPS) and the other Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), provide more robust navigation capabilities during the ionospheric storms associated with the peaks of the solar cycle that occur in 2022 and 2033, and enable receivers with more strength against radio frequency interference.
