Abstract: We formulate a new theoretical model which paves the way for methods of detection of particular types of dark matter using GNSS networks. Our model consists in a (topologically) massive version of Maxwell theory in a medium which admits topological defect solutions. Hence it describes hypothetical dark matter consisting in Earth-sized structures like monopoles, vortices or domain walls which could induce disturbances in the GNSS networks. In the future our model will then be constrained by GNSS measurements.
