Sub-meter GPS accuracy with PPP

u-blox achieves sub-meter GPS accuracy with PPP.
u‑blox, the Swiss positioning and wireless chip and module company, markets the NEO-6P GPS module with standalone sub-meter Precise Point Positioning (PPP).

PPP is made possible by a proprietary algorithm combined with ionospheric correctional data received from satellite based augmentation systems such as WAAS (USA), EGNOS (Europe) and MSAS (Japan). The system achieves full accuracy with unobstructed sky view after only a few minutes of operation. The device comes in u-blox’ industry standard NEO Leadless Chip Carrier (LCC) module form factor.

“The NEO-6P addresses the need for high-accuracy positioning used in surveying, mapping, marine, and slow-moving recreational applications. The solution provides high accuracy positioning at a fraction of the cost of other high precision solutions. Our PPP solution is compact, stand-alone, and uses a single frequency GPS receiver” said Thomas Nigg, VP Product Marketing at u-blox.

The NEO-6P also provides complete GPS satellite raw data allowing further accuracy improvement based on post processing by an external host.
