Decoding of SiRF Binary Protocol

In this article the SiRF binary format decoding algorithm was presented and parameters contained in it and methods of their use were described. Due to the current lack of practical software which would be able to decode the SiRF format the authors' application called SiRF Decoder was created. Algorithm used in the application allowing for fast reading and decoding of recorded binary SiRF protocol data was presented. For the analysis of decoded data the authors' program was used, on which the parameters contained in SiRF messages recorded by the GNSS receiver along with the possibilities of their use in the GNSS research were evaluated by the authors.
