Navigation Laboratory


Since November 2009 our own GNSS reference station is available to the students. It's basic configuration consists of a GNSS Receiver (NET G3, that is able to receive signals of the existing and coming GNSS-Systems (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo)), a digital control unit (PC-104 Board with Linux OS). The uninterruptible power supply provides a maximum security while data-logging.The reference station is automatically controlled by a dedicated software tools, developed by the Chair.
The system provides continuous high-frequency (20Hz) GPS data streams in real time using TCP or UDP sockets. All hardware modules are integrated into a rack and the GNSS receiver antenna was placed on the roof of the main building of TU Berlin on the geodetic research platform. A number of other software modules for Quality analysis, processing of the navigation data (single point positioning system) and generation of differential corrections is performed in real time is beeing under develpoment by the chair partially in frame of PhD, Master and Bachelor theses.
In addition, the raw data as real-time data streams or post-processing input are used for the scientific evaluation of GNSS signals for the purpose of research and teaching.
