Seminar on 'Designing the Spreading Code for NaviC's L1 Signal'



Event Date: 
Thursday, January 12, 2023 - 00:00

Navigation with Indian Constellation (NavIC) is an indigenous regional navigation satellite system developed by ISRO, currently functional in L5 and S bands. A new standard positioning service (SPS) civilian signal is being introduced in the more commonly-used L1 band, partly to increase penetration into the civilian sector. In this talk, we will describe the principles that went into our design of the L1 band signal, as well as current and emerging NavIC applications. We will also offer a glimpse into the exciting future of global navigation satellite systems.

P. Vijay Kumar received his B.Tech. and M.Tech. from IIT Kharagpur and IIT Kanpur, respectively, and his Ph.D. from the University of Southern California (USC).   From 1983-2003 he was on the faculty of USC and from 2003-2021, a Professor at IISc, Bengaluru, where he is currently an Honorary Professor.

His current research interests include codes for low-latency communication, distributed storage, and low-correlation sequences. He is a recipient of the 1995 IEEE Information Theory Society Prize Paper award and the IEEE Data Storage Best Paper Award of 2011. A pseudorandom sequence family co-designed by him formed the short scrambling code of the 3G WCDMA cellular standard. He was on the Board of Governors of the IEEE Information Theory Society from 2013-15 and was a plenary speaker at ISIT 2014.  He is a Fellow of the INAE, IAS, and INSA Indian academies, a JCB National Fellow, and a Fellow of IEEE.
