Ionosphere and its impact on navigation systems
One of the main threats to Global Navigation Satellites System (GNSS), such as GPS and Galileo is the variable propagation conditions encountered by the satellites signals as they pass through the Earth’s upper atmosphere (the ionosphere). Disturbances in the ionosphere may lead to phenomena such as scintillation, characterised by rapid signal fluctuations that impact positioning accuracy.
The candidate will work in collaboration with European Teams TRANSMIT to elaborate a Software prototype aiming to integrate (and develop) models mostly for satellite navigation purposes taking ionospheric threats into account.
