This study focuses on mitigating the multipath, especially the short-delay multipath of the BeiDou navigation satellite system under impulsive noise conditions. A modified least meanp-norm (LMP) algorithm is developed to reduce the convergence time with the same steady-state error by predicting the updating trend of weights. The modified normalized power and the normalized polynomial least meanpth power are also directly provided according to a similar principle. According to the research work,

Some significant simulation results verified the performance of the proposed adaption algorithm. Multipath parameter estimation tests have been conducted under different noise levels. Some comparative statistics performance assessments are quantified and verified under impulsive and additional white Gaussian noise environments. Results with various window widths of the average filtering and carrier-to-noise ratios indicate that the proposed scheme is able to improve the performance of the short-delay multipath mitigation under normal and degraded environments.
