The use of Compressive Sensing (CS) technique to acquire GPS signals saves processing time when compared with software FFT based receivers. The computational complexity is reduced by up to 60%. Such CS solution uses a fixed size measurement matrix chosen to offer a compromise between the processing overhead and signals acquisition success level. This paper proposes a dynamic acquisition algorithm for GPS signals based on CS. Instead of using a fixed size sampling channels and fixed correlators in the measurement matrix, our DSCR dynamically changes the number and size of the required Channels/Correlators according to the received GPS signals power during acquisition. This adaptive solution offers better fix capability when the GPS receiver is located in harsh signal environment or it will save valuable processing/decoding time (battery power, especially for Smartphones) when the receiver outdoors. A feedback loop is devised to control the sampling channels number and resize the measurement matrix.
