The research work within the European Satellite Communications Network of Excellence Phase II (SatNEx II) is organised in various joint actions (JA). JA2310 is dedicated to “Channel Modelling and Propagation Impairments Simulation” and encompasses 4 focus topics (FT). This contribution refers to the work in focus topic FT4 which deals with the satellite navigation channel. Contributing institutions to FT4 are CNES, DLR, ESTEC, ONERA, Politechnico di Milano, University of Surrey, and University of Vigo. FT4 is led by DLR. The contribution gives an overview about recent advances in modelling the multipath behaviour of the satellite navigation channel. The main activities focus on indoor and rural environments and also address complexity aspects of the channel models.
