Recently, precision guided munition systems and missile defense systems based on GPS have been taking a key role in modern warfare. In warfare however, unexpected interferences cause by large/small scale fading, radio frequency interferences, etc. These interferences result in a severe GPS positioning error, which could occur late supports and friendly fires. To solve the problems, this paper proposes an interference mitigation positioning method by adopting a wavelet denoising filter algorithm. The algorithm is applied to a GPS/QZSS/Wi-Fi combined positioning system which was performed by this laboratory. Experimental results of this paper are based on a real field test data of a GPS/QZSS/Wi-Fi combined positioning system and a simulation data of a wavelet denoising filter algorithm. At the end, the simulation result demonstrates its superiority by showing a 21.6% improved result in comparison to a conventional GPS system.
