8 Volumes | 2018 - 2021


This series

Navigation: Science and Technology (NST)

presents new developments and advances in various aspects of navigation - from land navigation, marine navigation, aeronautic navigation to space navigation; and from basic theories, mechanisms, to modern techniques. It publishes monographs, edited volumes, lecture notes and professional books on topics relevant to navigation - quickly, up to date and with a high quality. A special focus of the series is the technologies of the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSSs), as well as the latest progress made in the existing systems (GPS, BDS, Galileo, GLONASS, etc.). To help readers keep abreast of the latest advances in the field, the key topics in NST include but are not limited to:

– Satellite Navigation Signal Systems

– GNSS Navigation Applications

– Position Determination

– Navigational instrument

– Atomic Clock Technique and Time-Frequency System

– X-ray pulsar-based navigation and timing

– Test and Evaluation

– User Terminal Technology

– Navigation in Space

– New theories and technologies of navigation

– Policies and Standards

This book series is indexed in SCOPUS and EI Compendex databases.
