Executive Summary

Multipath is known to be one of the most dominant sources of accuracy degradation in satellite-based navigation systems. Multipath may cause biased position estimates that could jeopardize high-precision applications. This paper considers the problem of tracking the time-variant synchronization parameters of both the Line-Of-Sight Signal (LOSS) and its multipath replicas. In particular, the proposed algorithm tracks time-delays, amplitudes, phases and proposes a procedure to extract Doppler shifts from complex amplitudes. However, the interest is focused on LOSS time-delay estimates, since those provide the means to compute user's position. The undertaken Bayesian approach is implemented by a Particle Filter.
