Precise, cm-level satellite positioning is possible through the tracking of radio-frequency signals of the pseudo-range (code) and carrier-phase types. This has traditionally required expensive GPS receivers and antennas that cost several thousands of dollars. In the past few years, however, there has been a development of mass-market, low-cost, single- and multi-frequency receivers (and smartphones), which are able to track the code and phase signals from several regional and global navigation satellite systems (RNSSs/GNSSs). These RNSSs/GNSSs include BDS (China), Galileo (Europe), QZSS (Japan), NavIC (India) and GLONASS (Russia), and the lower cost enables precise GNSS positioning for a range of new applications. There has also been a recent development in low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites that can help to improve the positioning performance further when augmented with GNSS.
This Special Issue aims to highlight the development of such multi-GNSS positioning models and the performance that can be obtained. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Multi-GNSS inter-system and inter- and intra-frequency biases.
- Single/multi-frequency and multi-GNSS positioning and applications, making use of high-grade and low-cost receiver and antenna equipment (including smartphones).
- LEO and GNSS augmentation.
- Reliability analysis (ARAIM/DIA) using multi-GNSS models and single/multiple frequencies.
- Multi-GNSS networks and precise point positioning (PPP), real-time kinematic (RTK), and national positioning infrastructure (NPI) developments.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
