GPS Receiver on JaeSat

Enderle, Werner, Roberts, Peter, Bruggeman, Troy S., & Boyd, Cameron S. (2003) GPS Receiver on JaeSat. In 6th International Symposium of Satellite Navigation Technology and Applications, 22-25 July 2003, Melbourne, Australia.


The Joint Australian Engineering Satellite (JaeSat) is a micro satellite being developed under the management of the Australian Space Research Institute (ASRI). However, currently a project management responsibility transfer from ASRI to the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and a possible participation/cooperation from the Australian Cooperative Research Center (CRCSS) is under negotiation. JaeSat will be launched by a Ukraine rocket called Dnepr. The orbit will be a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) with an altitude of 800 km and an inclination around 98 deg. This paper will provide information about the QUT GPS receiver design characteristics with respect to software and hardware. The testing environment will be presented, which includes a GPS signal simulator and in-house custom designed software. Further, this paper will provide an outlook for future plans in order to implement additional features aiming for attitude determination based on GPS measurements.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
