1 Challenging GNSS environments are places where there is sufficient satellite availability for the receiver as a prerequisite for minimum accuracy, but where the signal can be partially shaded or reflected by trees, buildings and other objects. The actual results may vary due to the location and atmospheric activitiy, due to strong flickering, the condition and availability of the satellite system and the degree of multipath scattering and signal coverage.

2 Precision and reliability can be affected by certain factors such as multipath scattering, obstacles, satellite geometry and atmospheric conditions. The stated specifications require stable setups, a clear view of the sky, an environment free of electromagnetic interference and multipath scattering, optimal GNSS configurations and, in addition, surveying methods as they are usually used for surveys of the highest order with occupation times adapted to the base lengths. Baselines over 30 km in length require ephemeris accuracy and occupation times of up to 24 hours may be necessary to achieve high-precision static specification.

3 Accuracies may be affected by atmospheric conditions, multipath signals, shadowing and satellite geometry. The reliability of the initialisation is permanently transmitted to ensure the highest quality. Compensations are solved on the software side.

4 RMS efficiency is based on repeatable on-site measurements. The achievable accuracy and the initialization time can vary depending on the type and performance data of the receiver and antenna, the geographic location of the user, atmospheric conditions, scintillation intensity, the status and availability of the GNSS constellation, the degree of multipath scatteing and the proximity to shading (e.g. from large trees and buildings) vary.

5 Measurement iterations based on 1 minute. Better position accuracy through error rate filtering.

6 The models were mapped with a viDoc® Rover and an iPhone 13 Pro. The model accuracy depends on the environmental conditions and the calculation settings. The results may vary depending on the software provider.
