Handling the Biases for Improved Triple-Frequency PPP Convergence
Precise point positioning (PPP) can be considered a viable tool in the kitbag of GPS positioning techniques. One precision aspect of PPP is its use of carrier-phase measurements rather than just pseudoranges. But there is a catch. Often many epochs of measurements are needed for a position solution to converge to a sufficiently high accuracy. In this month’s column, we look at how using measurements from three satellite frequencies rather than just two can help. read more

PPP Solution from NovAtel Improved for Sub-Decimeter Accuracy

Fugro-chart

Fugro Seastar AS has been looking forward to demonstrating Real-Time Precise Point Positioning (PPP) based solely on Galileo signals since the last two satellites were launched October 12, the company said. Those two satellites brought the constellation to a total of four satellites, the minimum required to permit calculation of a Galileo-only position. Fugro achieved this task on March 18,... read more
