Algorithm for VRS Based on Star Structure
In view of the deficiency of algorithm for VRS (Virtual Reference Station) based on the triangular network, a novel algorithm for VRS which is based on star network is proposed. Firstly, a kind of baseline solution method of network RTK/VRS based on star structure is established and an ambiguity resolution method is also proposed in this paper. Then further research is done to analyze the algorithm of ionospheric and tropospheric correction separately. Finally, the network ambiguity resolution and correction calculation in both star structure network and traditional triangular network are verified and analyzed through two tests. These tests indicate that the Network RTK (VRS) based on star structure this paper proposed can obviously accelerate the fixed time of network ambiguity resolution, which can be up to 50%, and can achieve higher precision and reliability in the generation of network correction.
