This report presents experimental results for a moving platform using GPS PPP data for state estimation. Results from two PPP GPS state estimation approaches are presented: point-wise least squares (LS) and aided inertial navigation (INS). The point-wise LS results provide information about the accuracy and reliability of PPP GPS information at each measurement epoch, independent of other epochs. The INS results show the performance that can be achieved by combining information across measurement epochs. INS results are included for two different grades of IMU: navigation grade and consumer grade.
The report cites publications that contain more detailed expla- nations of the GNSS error sources, computation of PPP wide area correction, and the LS and aided INS estimation algorithms.
