General Introduction

(More information: https://navrs.wh.sdu.edu.cn/)

 

The Satellite Navigation and Remote Sensing group is founded by Prof. Guochang Xu in 2015, and now headed by Prof. Tianhe Xu. The group aims to exploit the principle of satellite navigation and remote sensing, as well as the corresponding applications. and has already started lectures and studies about some aspects of these research areas. The group is now focusing on the following three aspects:

  • National integrated PNT and seamless navigation in solar-terrestrial space. Focusing on the major needs of the country, the research content includes: the construction of the national comprehensive PNT system; deep-sea PNT-submarine reference and underwater navigation; deep-space PNT-deep-space reference and deep-space navigation; solar-terrestrial space seamless navigation-terminal and algorithm ; Flexible PNT and micro PNT software and hardware and core algorithms.

  • Marine environment monitoring and global sea level changes. Committed to solving major scientific issues, the main research content includes: spaceborne GNSS-R load index design; rapid on-board inversion of marine environmental parameters; research on the impact, meaning and mechanism of global/regional/offshore sea level changes.
