2022 Short Course: Multi-GNSS Precise Point Positioning and PRIDE PPP-AR

Dates: September 19-23, 2022
Times:  TBD
Venue: Virtual
Applications Open: June 17, 2022

Course Description

This course will introduce fundamentals of PPP and multi-GNSS integration for undifferenced data processing with a focus on what corrections should be applied to ensure that PPP can achieve millimeter precision in daily GNSS and centimeter precision in kinematic GNSS. Undifferenced multi-GNSS ambiguity resolution will be introduced in detail and experimented with using PRIDE PPP-AR software.

Learning Goals

Participants who complete this course will gain an understanding of the theory of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) precise point positioning (PPP), undifferenced ambiguity resolution, phase and code biases, multi-GNSS (GPS/GLONASS/BDS/Galileo/QZSS) integration, satellite attitude corrections, troposphere retrieval, higher-order ionosphere corrections, and super-high-rate (50 Hz) data processing. The participants will also learn how to use the PRIDE PPP-AR software to accomplish PPP and PPP ambiguity resolution at static and kinematic stations for tectonics, seismology, aerial photogrammetry, and airborne/shipborne gravimetry.

Application Process

Applications will open on or around June 17, 2022.

Interested individuals should apply to participate. Applications will be reviewed and acceptance decisions will be based on responses to prompts in the application. Initial priority of applications will be given to post-doctoral associates and graduate students from UNAVCO member institutions. (Check to see if your institution is a member of the UNAVCO consortium.)

Brief Agenda

Agenda is yet to be determined. Please check back closer to date of the short course.
