Demonstration of cold snapshot GNSS

Author: Jonas Beuchert

This script shows how to obtain a GNSS position fix from an 11-millisecond raw GNSS signal snapshot without any prior knowledge about the position of the receiver and only coarse knowledge about the time.

Algorithm adapted from:

Ignacio Fernández-Hernández and Kai Borre. “Snapshot positioning without initial
information”. In: GPS Solutions 20.4 (Mar. 2016), pp. 605–616
