Advanced Multi-Constellation EGNSS Augmentation and Monitoring Network and its Application in Precision

Updated: Aug 13, 2016

Background: 

The goal of AUDITOR is the implementation of novel precise-positioning techniques based on augmentation data in custom GNSS receivers to improve the performance of current augmentation services and reducing costs.

These techniques are already patented by the consortium and proven to offer better accuracy with faster convergence times than solutions commercially available. More sophisticated atmospheric models will be implemented to provide better corrections of ionospheric errors and further increase accuracy. These new receivers will enable cost-effective precision agriculture services to farmers, especially those with small and medium-sized businesses in areas of Europe.

The form factor and capabilities of the resulting receiver will be comparable to those of existing professional receivers in the market, while retaining all the advantages of software receivers: modularity, scalability, upgradability, and flexibility.

Objectives: 

The goal of AUDITOR is the implementation of novel precise-positioning techniques based on augmentation data in custom GNSS receivers to improve the performance of current augmentation services and reducing costs.
