Abstract

A non-real-time GPS software-defined radio was designed, built, and tested using the Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP) platform. A hardware front-end to receive the GPS signal and downconvert it to an intermediate frequency was also implemented. Subsequently, the system was used to acquire and process real GPS data to demonstrate the capability of the design.
