Abstract: The differences in cost, power consumption and volume between the BDS/GPS dual-mode loose-coupling timing module and the BDS/GPS dual-mode tight-coupling timing module, and the shortcomings of loose-coupling timing in integrity-monitoring are analysed, thereby it is concluded that the tight-coupling has obvious advantage in timing. The hardware design, positioning principle, timing principle and strategy associated with the tight-coupling timing module are demonstrated in detail. The experiments verify the advantage of tight-coupling timing in integrity-monitoring etc.
Key words: dual-mode; tight-coupling; timing
