Development of a real-time PPP processing facility (RT-PPP)
Development of a real-time PPP processing facility
The project "RT-PPP" (Development of a real-time PPP processing facility) is planned
to be a follow-up project of RA-PPP (Innovative Algorithms for Rapid Precise Point Positioning),
which has been carried out in the course of the 6th call of ASAP (Austrian Space Application Programme),
managed by the FFG (Austrian Research Promotion Agency). RA-PPP concentrated on the development
and evaluation of enhanced algorithms for PPP (Precise Point Positioning) to improve the
technique with respect to convergence time and accuracy. Contrary to the evaluation and
analysis of post-processing observations within RA-PPP, the proposed project RT-PPP
concentrates on the possibilities of the PPP technique within a real-time environment.
The project consortium consists of Graz University of Technology
(Institute of Navigation) and Vienna University of Technology (Institute of Geodesy and Geophysics)
as well as TeleConsult Austria GmbH and Wienstrom GmbH.
The overall project goal is to develop PPP techniques suitable for various real-time
or near-to-real-time applications. The main focuses are set to the production of real-time
clock, orbit and atmospheric corrections as well as their transmission via Ntrip to a
user-client. Further the options for applying algorithms for integrity monitoring
and the possibility of a combined use of GPS and GLONASS for PPP is investigated in
the course of the proposed project.
The performance of the developed real-time PPP processing facility will be evaluated
in terms of quality and suitability for real-time applications like positioning
of snow removal machines or navigation of agricultural vehicles.
