 Call for Papers: GNSS PPP and PPP-RTK

Satellite Navigation welcomes submissions to the thematic series on 'GNSS PPP and PPP-RTK'.

In recent years the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) Precise Point Positioning (PPP) technique has increasingly gained interest and widespread adoption within the GNSS community. A number of governmental, academic and commercial PPP services have been established to support scientific and commercial Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) applications. The rapid development of multi-GNSS constellations (GPS, GLONASS, BDS and Galileo) with multi-frequency signal capacity provides increasing visible satellites and available frequencies, which brings new opportunities for the PPP and PPP-RTK. On the one hand, the real-time satellite orbit, clock, UPD estimation and the improved atmosphere modeling techniques facilitate the algorithm and methodology development for PPP on a global scale and PPP-RTK with reference network support on a regional scale. On the other hand, the PPP and PPP-RTK with rapid integer ambiguity resolution support to deliver not only the high accuracy position but also the atmosphere corrections for the application of GNSS techniques in high accuracy positioning and space weather services. This special issue is mainly for the new theory, method and application in real-time PPP and PPP-RTK, the scope of which includes but not limited to the following aspects:

Multi-frequency and Multi-GNSS  PPP/PPP-RTK methodology;Real time orbit/clock/UPD estimation;Real time wide-area ionosphere and troposphere modeling;Inter-frequency and Inter-system bias estimation;Integrity of PPP/PPP-RTK;PPP ambiguity resolution and validation; LEO constellation enhanced PPP/PPP-RTK; PPP and PPP-RTK performance evaluation and analysis;Applications of PPP and PPP-RTK;
