  • Publication number: 20240134061
    Abstract: Systems and methods for a global positioning system using Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signals and Stokes Parameters in accordance with embodiments of the invention are illustrated. One embodiment includes a GNSS. The GNSS includes at least four satellites and a receiver. Each satellite includes at least one pair of antennas, and a transmitter configured to transmit GNSS positioning signals to a receiver. The receiver includes a memory containing a positioning application, and a processor comprising a set of one or more processors, the positioning application configures the processors to determine a position of the receiver by performing the steps of collecting horizontal and vertical linear components of transmitted GNSS positioning signals, computing Stokes parameters of collected GNSS signals, obtaining tuning parameters based on computed Stokes parameters, synthesizing new polarization signal using tuning parameters, and processing new polarization signal to obtain a position of the location.
