Current research in the field of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) offers great potential to transform our society by providing position and time information anywhere, anytime. Satellite-based navigation systems encompass a variety of applications, including intelligence vehicle technologies, wireless safety communications, and aircraft guidance and control. However, a significant challenge to widespread commercialization of those positioning applications remains in ensuring precision, reliability, and, in particular, safety. As examples, let us consider vehicle fleeting on a highway, person in a situation of immediate rescue, or aircraft approaching to land at an airport. Any misleading information that would result in a significant positioning error presents serious hazard to human health and economic loss. Therefore, performance validation and specifically integrity assurance are critical to the commercialization of safety-sensitive information and transportation systems.
