Hoi zäme!

I did have some time yesterday and wanted to finally finish the
design of my GNSS signal correlator. So I had a look at all the
different signals available (and planned) today, to see where
the similarities and differences are (an unified correlator means less
work for the implementation and potentially less work later when
extensions are needed). Unfortunately, it looks like that the BOC
signals have to be treated differently from the BPSK signals
due to their multiple peaks. I did a search on literature how
people solve this problem and couldn't find anything really
usefull. Most the papers seem to deal with advanced issues of
the acquistion and tracking process, after the basic stuff is
already done, which doesn't really help me understand the basics.

Thus I would like to ask, whether anyone has some recommendations
on what to read on BOC signal acquisition and tracking.
