New project to boost worldwide satnav accuracy

The EU-funded TREASURE project, led by the affiliated University of Nottingham, will combine all GNSS constellations.

It will exploit all GNSS - GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou and Galileo plus augmentations - to establish the blueprint for the world’s most accurate real-time positioning service.

The EU-funded TREASURE project, to be developed at prototype level, will benefit safety-critical activities such as aviation and maritime navigation, as well as high-accuracy-dependent applications such as offshore drilling, dredging, construction, agriculture and driverless cars and drones - to name a few.

The 4-year project will focus on a multi-GNSS service to take it to the next level - providing accuracy of a few centimetres in real-time and opening up a multitude of new possibilities.

The project aims to develop new error models, positioning algorithms and data assimilation techniques to monitor, predict and correct not only the effects of the atmosphere but also signal degradation due to man-made sources of interference, which can also limit positioning accuracy.

The study will focus on 2 existing GNSS techniques: Precise Point Positioning (PPP) and Network Real Time Kinematic (NRTK). Both use GPS and GLONASS, but could potentially meet future real-time high-accuracy demands when BeiDou and Galileo are fully integrated - if TREASURE is successful.
