The article provides details of:

  • Accuracy limitations due to GNSS satellites and the Earth’s atmosphere
  • Real Time Kinematic (RTK) error correction
  • Precise Point Positioning (PPP) error correction
  • Combining near-RTK accuracy and quick initialization times with the broadcast nature of PPP
  • GNSS corrections via subscription services

To gain the greatest possible accuracy from your GPS/GNSS receiver and achieve precise positioning for drones and unmanned vehicles, GNSS corrections need to be applied. To find out more about the best corrections technology for your application, read the full article on Unmanned Systems Source’s website.
