ABSTRACT: The analysis of the GPS multipath effects in maritime environment is constrained with the practice of traditional GPS receiver design, that prevents access to GPS signals in Base-band Processing Domain. Here we propose and validate a simple method for experimental identification of multipath effect in Navigation Processing Domain, based on spectral characterisation of time series of GPS positioning errors.
