Abstract
The goal of this project is to develop, implement, and experimentally validate a new Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) capable of providing sub-centimeter positioning accuracy for quasi-static scientific, mapping, and survey applications. The main feature of the proposed DGNSS solution is that it leverages GNSS reference data from existing NOAA's Continuously Operational Reference Stations (CORS). External augmentation services are not required, and because the proposed system is a DGNSS-based, neither are externally generated precise GNSS orbit and clock data. Advanced filtering algorithms are developed to provide reliable and economical sub-centimeter accuracy for a variety of static and quasi-static scientific and commercial applications.
