A virtual event in 2021, the Munich Satellite Navigation Summit 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.
Available to interested parties from homes or offices around the world on the March dates, the many sessions that will be accessible via the Munich Summit website include:
GNSS Program Updates: Global, Regional and Augmentation Systems
Critical Trends for Navigation & Timing Systems
The Status and Future of Galileo
GNSS Remote Sensing
The Frontiers of GNSS Accuracy
Under the rubric “What comes next?” the last topic, Frontiers of GNSS Accuracy, will describe how recent advances in GNSS correction services bring unprecedented accuracy in near-real time without base stations: centimeter level with global availability. Four 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.
