Comparisons between GalileoSat and Global Navigation Flower Constellations Conference Paper uri icon


  • Flower Constellation design scheme was applied to design new global navigation system constellations called GNFCs. To investigate the possibility of reduced number of satellites in a GNFC, both genetic algorithms and Flower Constellation schemes are applied to find optimality. The proposed optimal GNFCs are then compared with GalileoSat constellation. New approach shows the better navigation performance than that of GalileoSat constellation. © 2005 IEEE.
