The GPS antenna on mobile terminals suffers from multipath effects owing to reflection, diffraction and scattering of the incident wave in a radio environment. A traditional approach to evaluate the GPS antenna performance in a real multipath environment is therefore insufficient. Presented is a new technique to characterise these environmental effects and the system performance of GPS antennas on mobile terminals.
