Low-Cost GNSS Antenna Arrays for Improved Performance, Anti-Spoofing and Meaconing and Interference Mitigation

Low-Cost GNSS Antenna Arrays for Improved Performance, Anti-Spoofing and Meaconing and Interference Mitigation

The main objective of the activity is to design and develop a prototype representative of a multi-element GNSS antenna and receiver specifically for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) applications, that is able to mitigate different types of impairments (jamming/interference, spoofing/meaconing, multipath), by the use of dynamic digital beamforming techniques, and supporting multiple GNSS constellation with dual frequency.

A test campaign will be carried out in order to characterise the performance of the prototype in different conditions, and compare these results to reference solutions for benchmarking.

The activity will focus especially on the implementation of affordable technologies that will be subsequently used in the development of future beamforming antenna products. Product industrialisation tasks are out of the scope of the activity. However it will be ensured that the technologies selected for the prototype are representative of the end product regarding performance and costs targets. In particular, the prototype will be based as much as possible on existing technologies (components, algorithms…) in order to reduce its recurrent cost, and pave the way for an affordable end product.

The outcome of the activity will consist of the Antenna and Receiver Prototype (Hardware and Software) and the associated documentation.
