Galileo millimeter-level kinematic precise point positioning with ambiguity resolution

Abstract : On February 11, 2019, four additional Galileo satellites were put into service, approaching the completion of the European global navigation satellite system constellation. For the first time, the performance of Galileo system in terms of high-accuracy precise point positioning (PPP) can be evaluated. The results presented in this paper are based on one full week (February 11-17, 2019) of post-processed kinematic positioning for a set of fixed stations at a 30-s sampling. Due to the availability of precise Galileo orbit and "integer" clock products, delivered by CNES/CLS Analysis Center of International GNSS Service, the impact of Galileo ambiguity resolution on the positioning results is also quantified. The precision using Galileo-only measurements in the East, North and Up directions is 10 mm, 7 mm and 33 mm for PPP and 6 mm, 5 mm and 28 mm for PPP-AR (PPP with ambiguity resolution) (1 sigma), respectively. These results shall represent the future performance of the Galileo system for kinematic post-positioning. They also indicate the important future contribution of Galileo to high-accuracy multi-GNSS applications.
