About The Course

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a worldwide, satellite-based navigation system used for aviation, remote sensing, shipping, vehicle tracking, surveying, time transfer, search and rescue operations, and personal communications via satellite. The GPS Technology Laboratory provides a hands-on introduction to this rapidly growing field, covering both applications and the technology that makes satellite navigation possible. It is by nature an interdisciplinary course, covering subject material in orbit prediction, satellite systems, signal processing, error modeling, computer programming, digital and microwave electronics.

The GPS Technology Laboratory provides an overview of the elements of satellite-based navigation, centered on six lab projects and an individual project. ASEN 5190 is open to graduates students in Aerospace, Electrical, Mechanical, and Civil Engineering, Telecom, Physics, Math, and Computer Science.

ASEN 4519 is open to seniors in any Engineering major.
