PERFORMING CENTIMETER-LEVEL SURVEYS IN SECONDS WITH GPS CARRIER PHASE: INITIAL RESULTS

Benjamin W. Remondi

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Two kinematic surveys were performed, using TI-4100s, which substantiate the author’s earlier claim that centimeter-accuracy relative surveys can be accomplished within seconds. The first test was carried out in Arkansas using wide-bandwidth tracking. Although noisy, these data permitted the concepts and the data processing software to be verified. Based on results of this survey, a definitive kinematic survey experiment was designed and executed at the National Bureau of Standards, Gaithersburg, MD. The results of this experiment show that centimeter-level relative surveys can be performed in seconds. A priori geodetic coordinates of the initial location of the “roving” antenna are not required since they, too, can be determined within seconds.
