Abstract [en]

This report intends to verify the possibility that the FastICA algorithm could be applied to the GPS system to eliminate the impulsive noise from the receiver end. As the impulsive noise is so unpredictable in its pattern and of great energy level to swallow the signal we need, traditional signal selection methods exhibit no much use in dealing with this problem. Blind Source Separation seems to be a good way to solve this, but most of the other BSS algorithms beside FastICA showed more or less degrees of dependency on the pattern of the noise. In this thesis, the basic mathematic modelling of this advanced algorithm, along with the principles of the commonly used fast independent component analysis (fastICA) based on fixed-point algorithm are discussed. To verify that this method is useful under industrial use environment to remove the impulsive noises from digital BPSK modulated signals, an observation signal mixed with additive impulsive noise is generated and separated by fastICA method. And in the last part of the thesis, the fastICA algorithm is applied to the GPS receiver modeled in the SoftGNSS project and verified to be effective in industrial applications. The results have been analyzed.
