Evaluating the performance of navigation payloads
from Inside GNSS
As a navigation satellite transmits multiple signals on single frequency (e.g., Open Service and Restricted Service over L5 Band), these are combined on a common carrier to comprise a composite signal. This composite signal passes through navigation payload subsystems such as an up-converter, traveling wave tube amplifier, filters and so on. These subsystems may introduce adverse effects on the signal.
