By Peter O. Large, Vice President, Trimble November 29, 2013, marks the 210th anniversary of the birth of Christian Doppler. His work laid down the fundamental concepts that enabled researchers at Johns Hopkins University in the United States to make observations on the signals of Sputnik I during the International Geophysical Year of 1957. From those observations more than 60... read more

Innovation: Doppler-Aided Positioning

May 1, 2011By
Figure 1. Satellite tracking and carrier-phase anomaly summary during the observation time-span. These data were collected in a dense urban environment in both static and kinematic mode. The superimposed red-points show epochs where carrier-phase observables are either missing or contaminated with cycle slips, loss of locks, and/or other measurement anomalies.

Improving Single-Frequency RTK in the Urban Enviornment
A look at how Doppler measurements can be used to smooth noisy code-based pseudoranges to improve the precision of autonomous positioning as well as to improve the availability of single-frequency real-time kinematic positioning, especially in urban environments. read more
