Workshop on the GNSS and GPS, precise navigation, UAV and drone applications

From 22 - 27 May 2018, under the PEER project a training was organized on Global Differential GPS (GDGPS) System which was delivered by Dr. Rui Fernandes from Space & Earth Geodetic Analysis Laboratory,during the training and observation station was also installed in Nazarbayev University campus, this system is highly accurate, and extremely robust real-time GNSS monitoring and augmentation system.

Employing a large ground network of real-time reference receivers, innovative network architecture, and award-winning real-time data processing software, the GDGPS System provides sub-decimeter (<10 cm) positioning accuracy and sub-nanosecond time transfer accuracy anywhere in the world, on the ground, in the air, and in space, independent of local infrastructure.

A complete array of real-time GNSS state information, environmental data, and ancillary products are available in support of the most demanding GNSS Augmentation operations, Assisted GNSS (A-GNSS) services, situational assessment, and environmental monitoring - globally, uniformly, accurately, and reliably.

Full product line services are available for GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou. Navigation data services are currently available for Galileo. Full Galileo product line is expected in late 2016.

GDGPS has been providing mission-critical position, navigation, and timing data services to industry and government operations since 2000, with 99.99% reliability (measured for the GPS differential corrections product). The GDGPS navigation technology underlie major global infrastructure, including the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), and the next generation GPS Operational Control Segment (OCX).
