The Munich Satellite Navigation Summit 2021 convenes on the Internet from March 16—17. High-level sessions will provide the latest information on status and developments in wide-ranging PNT topics. One panel will focus on the Frontiers of GNSS Accuracy: achievements in RTK, PPP, and new combinations of the two advanced techniques.
The full program is available here. All Summit sessions will be accessible, for a 250 euro registration fee, via the Munich Summit website.
Under the rubric “Improving Techniques,” a session on Wednesday, March 17 will cover The Frontiers of GNSS Accuracy, moderated by Inside GNSS editor Alan Cameron.

“The technology is possible – and it’s incredible!” Recent advances in GNSS correction services bring unprecedented accuracy in near-real time without base stations: centimeter level with global availability. Our experts explain the algorithms of precise point positioning (PPP), real-time kinematic (RTK) and the newly achieved RTK+PPP; define the positioning requirements for high-precision applications in terms of accuracy, availability, continuity and convergence time; demonstrate testing to verify the new benchmarks; show performance with real-time transmission, raw data, corrections processing, and data set transmission; and give examples for PPP service and applications in dynamic operations.
