Abstract
By analyzing the relationship between the GDOP value and the area of the polygon formed with the endpoints of the satellite-receiver unit vectors in 2-D, the optimal satellite-receiver geometry (SRG) and the minimum GDOP value of n satellites( ) in 3-D were deduced in this paper. Based on the minimum GDOP value and the optimal SRG in 3-D, a satellite selection algorithm is proposed to solve the problem of selecting more than 4 satellites from GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems). The good performance of this algorithm on improving satellite selection efficiency with less sacrifice of the GDOP value is illustrated by simulation.
