The National Space Science and Technology Center (NSSTC) is looking to hire a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Postdoctoral researcher to work in NSSTC research and development activities in the United Arab Emirates University. The work is in the area of GNSS receiver digital signal processing of new innovative GNSS signals.

The candidate is expected to perform research related to GNSS signal processing acquisition techniques, which will involve several phases as follows:

  • Definition of BOC, ALTBOC and Metasignal acquisition techniques
  • Theoretical derivation of the ALTBOC Metasignal spectrum
  • Definition and development of acquisition processing of the BOC and ALTBOC signals for validation of NSSTC GNSSaS Stage 1 Technology Demonstrator satellite.
  • Optimization / modification of the developed signal processing for robust acquisition robustness that is necessary to process a GNSS signal received from a low Earth Orbit satellite, which has high Doppler dynamic. Pseudorange and carrier phase measurements shall be demonstrated to be produced with a high availability and very low cycle slip rates.
  • Validation of the optimized acquisition algorithms on the signal samplings recorded in the laboratory, starting with a comparison of the digitized and theoretical BOC and ALTBOC Metasignal spectra.
  • Optionally, early acquisition processing of digitized “GNSSaS-Stage1” signals received from space will be made if the related recordings are available in time.
  • Disseminate results via peer-reviewed journals.
  • Maintain the GNSS ground station signal analysis station at NSSTC
