This course emphasizes the fundamentals of differential GNSS baseline techniques with focus on DGPS and an introduction to DGPS RTK applications. The course will explore the various error mitigation techniques and methods for improving the navigation to submeter and high-precision positioning.
Performance aspects with respect to accuracy, integrity, continuity, and availability will be presented.
The course concludes with an overview of available differential available.
Engineers and executives.
