Abstract: Code tracking accuracy is an important parameter for the compatibility interoperability evaluation of navigation systems.In order to quantitatively analyze the code tracking accuracy of GNSS signals under Gaussian interference,starting from common Gaussian interference signals,the code tracking accuracy of GNSS signals was simulated and analyzed according to the MATLAB software,the CT-SSC expression of NELP and DP loop were given,the CT-SSC and Cramer-Rao lower bounds of the loop model were analyzed meanwhile.The simulation results show that the code tracking error of GNSS signals is more obvious by Gaussian-narrowband interference and wideband interference under the same conditions,while code tracking error of GNSS signal is more stable under Gauss matching spectrum interference and band-limited white interference in a certain signal-to-interference ratio range.Under the model of DP,the three-dimensional surface of GNSS signal is more “smooth” than CELP and NELP model in terms of CT-SSC,and the tracking performance is best.The tracking performance analysis of GNSS signals can provide an important reference for GNSS system on compatibility and interoperability assessment as well as modern GNSS recei-ver design,and the expressions of CT-SSC about NELP and DP model can be analysis parallel with CELP model.

Key words: Gauss interference, GNSS, Code tracking, CT-SSC, Cramer-Rao boundary
