Navigation, positioning, location - 2019

Static and kinematic precise positioning

OBJECTIVE :

This training course is dedicated to users of satellite positioning system who wish to master the different aspects of a precise static or kinematic positioning including: terrestrial reference frame, Earth deformation, height above geoid and ellipsoid, coordinate transformation, differential and precise point positioning, GNSS hybridization…

COURSE DURATION AND TIMETABLE :

The course lasts 5 days (30 hours).

GENERAL APPROACH :

What you should know about geodesy, space systems and how to process their data in order to locate users with centimeter accuracy… or better!

PREREQUISITE :

Level: Advanced

COURSE DIRECTOR(S) :

Dr Félix PEROSANZ:

Expert in Space Geodesy of the French Space Agency (CNES).
