magicGNSS: Precise GNSS Products Out of the Box

R. Piriz, A. Mozo, P. Navarro, D. Rodriguez

Abstract: Today, an increasing number of users need high-quality GNSS products, such as precise satellite orbit and clock estimations and predictions, accurate receiver coordinates or tropospheric delays, for their applications (e.g., precise point positioning, GNSS augmentation services, weather services, etc). While there are a number of products and tools available for this purpose (e.g. IGS products, or different GPS processing SW packages developed by research institutions), these are sometimes not tailored to the specific user needs and often difficult to use and not developed according to industry quality standards. GMV is a developer of high-technology solutions and products in several domains, including aerospace, defence, transport, IT and medicine. OVer the last two decades, GMB has accumulated a vast expertise in the development of precise Orbit Determination and Time Synchronization (ODTS) algorithms and tools, especially in the GNSS field, through a number of activities. These activities include the development of Precise Orbit Determination SW packages for use in several satellite missions, the participation in the European GNSS programmes EGNOS and Galileo since their early stages, as well as a strong R&D activity to improve skills and foster innovation in this key area. With all this background, GMB is in the process of developing magicGNSS, a suite of software and data products covering a wide range of GNSS user needs. magicGNSS Beta is already available online at magicgnss.gmv.com. This is a free-of-charge online service for registered users. At present it provides a fully-functional demo version of the ORbit Determination & Time Synchronization (ODTS) module processing past and current GPS data from a network of global IGS stations.
