Satellite Navigation welcomes submissions to the thematic series on ‘LEO Navigation Augmentation System’.
Low-orbit navigation satellites have become a popular focus of research due to their unique characteristics. These satellites operate at low altitudes and have several distinctive features, including high dynamics, strong downlink navigation signal power, and high communication bandwidth, that can make up for the shortcomings of traditional satellite-based augmentation systems and ground-based augmentation systems in real-time high-precision positioning, and provides users with continuous, high-precision, and highly reliable augmentation services. On the other hand. Apart from its ability to improve the accuracy and reliability of navigation systems, this advanced technology also presents new opportunities in a range of other fields such as real-time atmospheric monitoring and earth science applications.
To promote the continued development of satellite navigation augmentation technology, especially the advancing research in low-orbit navigation augmentation. This special issue aims to gather the latest research findings and advancements in this field, including research on the theory, methods and key technologies of low-orbit navigation augmentation, and the integration of LEO augmentation, satellite-based augmentation, and ground-based augmentation. Topics include but are not limited to：
- Theory and Method of LEO Navigation Augmentation;
- System Design of Signal for LEO Navigation Augmentation;
- Space-Time Reference Establishment and Maintenance of GNSS and LEO Constellation;
- Autonomous Precise Orbit and Clock Determination of Low Earth Orbit Augmentation Constellation;
- Error Calibration of LEO Augmentation System;
- LEO Enhanced High Accuracy Positioning;
- LEO Enhanced Integrity;
- The Integration of LEO Augmentation, Satellite-based Augmentation, and Ground-based Augmentation;Receiver Terminal, Chip and Antenna for LEO Augmentation System;
- Research Applied in Space Science and Earth Science.
