Producció científica: Contribució a una revistaArticleRecercaAvaluat per experts


From the analysis of chirp spread spectrum (CSS) signals in radar and communication applications, we can distinguish the cases of estimating only data or time-delay propagation or Doppler frequency when all the other parameters are known or set to zero. The case of estimating all three parameters at the same time has not been treated in the literature of radar or communications. We consider in this paper the use of a CSS signal for a LEO-PNT signal, which perfectly fits with the case of estimating the three parameters mentioned above. Specifically, the main goal of this paper is to explain the design of a CSS signal for PNT. This will include the design of the ranging component and the data component. The performance evaluation of both components will also be analyzed and linked. It is important to note that the focus of this paper will be the data component, and we link it with the pilot component through sensitivity performance. The results given in this paper show the capabilities of CSS for PNT. Previous works have shown accuracies on the level of meters with achievable data rates shown in this paper in the order of tens of kbps.
