Kinematica

Kinematica easily post-processes inertial data and raw GNSS to achieve higher accuracy position, velocity, and orientation.

Kinematica is a GNSS/INS post-processed kinematic (PPK) software. It processes raw GNSS and INS data to achieve a higher level of accuracy than real-time INS. Kinematica is compatible with all of Advanced Navigation’s INS solutions.

Maximum INS Accuracy

Kinematica processes data backward and forward in time with advanced algorithms. This allows it to significantly reduce errors and extract the very best performance possible from an inertial navigation system.

Kinematic GNSS Positioning

Kinematica features kinematic GNSS post processing which provides a 200x increase in position accuracy over standard GNSS. Kinematica automatically downloads the closest RINEX base station data and outputs position to an accuracy of 8mm.

Precise Point Positioning (PPP)

The Precise Point Positioning (PPP) algorithm models GNSS errors to provide decimetre-level positioning accuracy without a base station. PPP can be used anywhere in the world, for example at sea or in remote areas, where real-time kinematic (RTK) accuracy in unavailable.

Forward And Reverse Processing

Kinematica's PPK algorithm parses data forwards and backwards to fill satellite outages and ignore errors that would normally affect a real time solution. Data is processed in both diurections multiple times in order to obtain the highest accuracy results.

Dual Antenna Heading

For dual antenna systems, Kinematica supports tightly coupled dual antenna heading processing which significantly increases heading accuracy.
