Problem Solving 101 with Rongsheng (Ken) Li – Finding Practical Applications in GPS Challenged Systems

At Artech House, we ask our authors what problems their books can help readers solve. In this series, we share what our authors aim to do in their writing. Read on to find out what Rongsheng (Ken) Li, who wrote All Source Positioning, Navigation and Timing, had to say:

What are some problems your book will help solve?

  • Help to define the system architecture for GPS denied/GPS challenged PNT system
  • Help to define the algorithms for the GPS denied/GPS challenged PNT system
  • Help to develop the software for the GPS denied/GPS challenged PNT system

What are the features of your book and the specific benefits a reader can expect to derive from those features?  

Ability to configure PNT systems

Feature: Teaches how to develop GPS denied/GPS challenged PNT system

Benefit: Engineers, professors and students can use the teaching to develop GPS denied/GPS challenged PNT system which are extremely important for military, commercial and even consumer systems that requires positioning, navigation and timing solutions

Practical applications of PNT systems

Feature: The book provides the most comprehensive coverage of non-GPS/GNSS based PNT technology including celestial, vision, terrain referenced, gravity anomaly, magnetic anomaly, signal of opportunity, as well as collaborative PNT

Benefits: The reader can get the most updated and comprehensive information on these technologies and use the contents in the work or teaching

Useful for practitioners

Feature: The book teaches the mathematical modeling skills specific to PNT systems which are critical for someone who wants to be become skilled in the art of PNT system development. Not too many book teach at this level of elegance, simplicity and clarity

Benefits: One of the best book to learn PNT system modeling and analyst skills. Must-have book for a PNT analyst
