GPS Lab Logo Image

The GPS Research Lab works with the FAA, U.S. Air Force, NASA and the Department of Transportation to pioneer systems that augment the Global Positioning System (GPS) and the other Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). The laboratory is directed by Professor Todd Walter, Dr. Sherman Lo and Dr. Juan Blanch. It has about a dozen members including professional researchers, graduate students and supporting staff. These days, we focus on Satellite Based Augmentation Systems, Advanced Autonomous Integrity Monitoring (ARAIM), high precision GNSS for autonomous cars, and cyber security of navigation.

Stanford Center for Position, Navigation & Time (SCPNT)

The GPS Lab is closely affiliated with SCPNT. The SCPNT website provides both historical and current  information about GPS research at Stanford. Since 2007, SCPNT has been hosting an annual PNT Symposium, and the SCPNT website contains an archive of presentation files from all PNT synposia, plus a gallery of GPS/PNT photos and video.
