The Cottesloe-Fremantle GNSS-Array Kinematic Boat Experiment

On 25 April, 2012, we conducted a kinematic experiment onboard a boat “Kharisma” in collaboration with the Centre of Marine Sciences and Technology (CMST) of Curtin University. The purpose of this experiment was the collection of GNSS-Array data on a moving platform. We used 9 receivers on the boat and 9 receivers at the base station with their antennas rigidly installed on our 2m X 2m antenna frame. The boat installation consisted of 4 ea Sokkia receivers, 4 ea Javad receivers and 1 ea Trimble receiver. On the base station the only difference was the use of a Septentrio receiver instead of Trimble receiver. The data collected during this experiment will be used for testing our multi-GNSS multi-frequency concepts like PPP-RTK, Array-PPP, attitude determination (MC-LAMBDA), and Galileo, Compass and GLONASS positioning.
