This Handbook presents a complete and rigorous overview of the fundamentals, methods and applications of the multidisciplinary field of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), providing an exhaustive, one-stop reference work and a state-of-the-art description of GNSS as a key technology for science and society at large. All global and regional satellite navigation systems, both those currently in operation and those under development (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, QZSS, IRNSS/NAVIC, SBAS), are examined in detail. The functional principles of receivers and antennas, as well as the advanced algorithms and models for GNSS parameter estimation, are rigorously discussed. The book covers the broad and diverse range of land, marine, air and space applications, from everyday GNSS to high-precision scientific applications and provides detailed descriptions of the most widely used GNSS format standards, covering receiver formats as well as IGS product and meta-data formats. The full coverage of the field of GNSS is presented in seven parts, from its fundamentals, through the treatment of global and regional navigation satellite systems, of receivers and antennas, and of algorithms and models, up to the broad and diverse range of applications in the areas of positioning and navigation, surveying, geodesy and geodynamics, and remote sensing and timing. Each chapter is written by international experts and amply illustrated with figures and photographs, making the book an invaluable resource for scientists, engineers, students and institutions alike.

Written for pilots who want to fly airplanes that can take off and land from water, this resource provides tips for experienced seaplane pilots as well as requirements for getting certified as a seaplane pilot. All the tasks a pilot must demonstrate during the checkride to receive a seaplane certificate are covered in detail, including preflight preparations, taxiing, sailing, seaplane base and airport operations, takeoffs and landings, and emergency operations. The FAA practical test standards are included as an appendix.

This book extends the scientific bestseller "GPS - Theory and Practice" to cover Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and includes the Russian GLONASS, the European system Galileo, and additional systems. The book refers to GNSS in the generic sense to describe the various existing reference systems for coordinates and time, the satellite orbits, the satellite signals, observables, mathematical models for positioning, data processing, and data transformation. This book is a university-level introductory textbook and is intended to serve as a reference for students as well as for professionals and scientists in the fields of geodesy, surveying engineering, navigation, and related disciplines.

An updated guide to GNSS, and INS, and solutions to real-worldGNSS/INS problems with Kalman filtering Written by recognized authorities in the field, this thirdedition of a landmark work provides engineers, computer scientists,and others with a working familiarity of the theory andcontemporary applications of Global Navigation Satellite Systems(GNSS), Inertial Navigational Systems, and Kalman filters.Throughout, the focus is on solving real-world problems, with anemphasis on the effective use of state-of-the-art integrationtechniques for those systems, especially the application of Kalmanfiltering. To that end, the authors explore the various subtleties,common failures, and inherent limitations of the theory as itapplies to real-world situations, and provide numerous detailedapplication examples and practice problems, including GNSS-aidedINS (tightly and loosely coupled), modeling of gyros andaccelerometers, and SBAS and GBAS. Drawing upon their many years of experience with GNSS, INS, andthe Kalman filter, the authors present numerous design andimplementation techniques not found in other professionalreferences. The Third Edition includes: Updates on the upgrades in existing GNSS and other systemscurrently under development Expanded coverage of basic principles of antenna design andpractical antenna design solutions Expanded coverage of basic principles of receiver design and anupdate of the foundations for code and carrier acquisition andtracking within a GNSS receiver Expanded coverage of inertial navigation, its history, itstechnology, and the mathematical models and methods used in itsimplementation Derivations of dynamic models for the propagation of inertialnavigation errors, including the effects of drifting sensorcompensation parameters Greatly expanded coverage of GNSS/INS integration, includingderivation of a unified GNSS/INS integration model, itsMATLAB® implementations, and performance evaluation undersimulated dynamic conditions The companion website includes updated background material;additional MATLAB scripts for simulating GNSS-only and integratedGNSS/INS navigation; satellite position determination; calculationof ionosphere delays; and dilution of precision.

Get ready to take flight as two certified flight instructors guide you through the pilot ratings as it is done in the real world, starting with Sport Pilot training, then Private Pilot, followed by the Instrument Rating, Commercial Pilot, and Air Transport Pilot. They cover the skills of flight, how to master Flight Simulator, and how to use the software as a learning tool towards your pilot’s license. More advanced topics demonstrate how Flight Simulator X can be used as a continuing learning tool and how to simulate real-world emergencies.
