Independent tests of the new Sokkia iX1001 and Topcon GT-1000 ATR totalstations (TPS)
From September to October 2017 the evaluation of new Sokkia iX-1001 and Topcon GT-1001 total stations was done in the HSKA Laboratory on GNSS and Navigation . As a result of the large-scale tests on indoor and outdoor conditions all attributes on quality and accuracy of both stations could be confirmed. The integration of the above new total stations and the online geomonitoring system GOCA was done in that frame and achieved on a 100% functionality. So, both geomonitoring sensors, Sokkia iX-1001 and Topcon GT-1001 ATR, can be used as GOCA-system components for the geomonitoring of any kind of object.
Conference in Riga
On 8th of February 2018 in a frame of International conference of University of Latvia "Geodinamics & Geospatial research" the laboratory of Navigation & GNSS Technologies has presented two reports with the most actual developments in direction of geomonitoring and navigation tasks. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Reiner Jäger gave a report with topic "Geodetic challenges on positioning & navigation for mobile GIS presented along the NAVKA-Disy project PREGON-X". The second report was presented by master student and GOCA project assistant Dipl-Ing. Lyudmila Gorokhova. The topic of the report is "Model- and Sensor-Integration for an Integrated 3D geomonitoring in a modern data communication structure with applications to the Stuttgart TV tower". The participation in a conference has allowed to organize useful experience exchange and find new possibilities for the further cooperation with international colleagues. The laboratory of Navigation and GNSS Technologies expresses its gratitude to the latvian partners for the invitation to participate in such significant and interesting event!
The Campus day in HSKA on 22nd of November 2017
Master class for students on the University rooftop
On 23rd of June 2017 in a frame of study plan a master class of satellite geodesy for students from University was orginized. The laboratory of navigation and GNSS technologies has the whole process of geomonitoring, based on the example of system using u-blox receivers, presented. The students could get the experience in real work with equipment and see the chain of data processing and results analysis.
On 19-21 of April laboratory of Navigation and GNSS Technologies again took place in International Exibition InterExpo Geo-Siberia 2017 in Novosibirsk (Russia). This exhibition was the 13th, where following the tradition the online geomonitoring process based on the GOCA system and other actual projects (NAVKA, DFHBF) were represented. In a frame of COST EFFECTIVE POSITIONING AND GEO DATA SEMINAR, organized by FIG, the Laboratory has presented the new project for geomonitoring of TV tower in Stuttgart.
