ECE/MAE 4150
Global Positioning System Theory and Design

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a constellation of 24 or more satellites used for navigation and precise geodetic positions measurements. The GPS satellites are operated by the United States Department of Defense (DoD). After 30 years of continued service, GPS is still a rapidly developing technology with far-reaching applications in sea and air navigation, mining and forestry, meteorology, aerospace engineering, and cell phone and power-grid timing.

ECE/MAE 4150, the Global Positioning System course at Cornell University, was the first of its kind. In this course, GPS operating principles and GPS-related engineering practices will be analyzed. Learn about Navigational Algorithms, Receiver Analysis, Ranging Errors, Ionospheric Effects, Dilution of Precision, and Differential GPS. Be part of one of the fastest growing fields in Electrical Engineering! For more information, please contact Dr. Mark Psiaki.
