Next Generation GNSS

GNSS installation at NASA's GGAO

The GNSS ground station element of the future Next Generation NASA Space Geodetic Network will be an extension of the current implementation at NASA's existing, fully automated, remotely administered, GNSS sites. Modern receivers, capable of multi-constellation tracking, best-practice antenna monumentation, and inter-technique baseline vector measurement support are to be incorporated, the latter being an element of this proposal.

During the proposal performance period, a next generation GNSS system capable of advance tracking of multiple satellite systems will be installed at GGAO as part of the prototype next generation NASA Space Geodetic Station, and operated in concert with the other systems. This will include co-location with the existing GNSS system and vector ties to the other technique elements.
