GNSS Receiver Calibration Laboratory

The main objective of the laboratory is to study and test multisystem GNSS satellite receivers for positioning quality and reliability.

This research includes an analysis of:

  • measuring equipment, i.e. satellite receivers and antennas using a GNSS signal generator and calibration base
  • Measurement errors of GNSS observations, including atmospheric delays, measurement noise, and hardware delays
  • signal acquisition and precision positioning algorithms.

Indoor navigation/localization test fields​

  • Innovative concepts for cartographic visualization of building interiors
  • Perception of navigation application under different conditions
  • Testing the accuracy of position determination by navigation applications inside a building using various sensors
  • Comparing positioning systems with different characteristics

The surveying, reference baseline for research, and calibration of measurement instruments​

The main purpose of the laboratory’s operation is to perform calibrations of geodetic electromagnetic rangefinders to ensure measurement consistency across the country

This research includes:

  • Determination of measurement uncertainty of tested rangefinders based on WUT200 
  • Determination of cyclic error (phase rangefinders)
  • Determination of the addition constant
  • Field test procedures for GNSS antennas
  • Field test procedures for GNSS-RTK technology

Terrestrial Laser Scanning and Photogrammetric Calibration Laboratory/Test Fields

The laboratory enables:

1) Testing/verification/calibration of active sensors:

  • ground-based laser scanners
  • RGB cameras
  • electromagnetic rangefinders
  • tachymeters

2) Testing/verification/calibration of passive sensors:

  • cameras with different optical resolution and matrix
  • optical shape mapping systems
  • shape mapping algorithms and methods
  • algorithms and methods of image processing

Laboratory for processing and integration of multisensor aerial and satellite data (2D and 3D)

The main purpose of the research carried out at the laboratory is to perform complex large-scale processing of aerial and satellite data.

This research includes:

  • Using BigData technology to work with remote sensing data collected on the CENAGIS Platform;
  • Processing point clouds from aerial laser scanning using a GPU cluster;
  • Integration and harmonization of remote sensing data (satellite, aerial, UAV);
  • Spatial analyses, performed on a large scale ( voivodship, country) or on large volumes of data.

UAV test field

The main purpose of the test field’s operation is to calibrate and test remote sensing sensors mounted on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The test fields allow:

  • Perform calibration of photogrammetric cameras and laser scanners on UAVs;
  • Evaluate the accuracy of UAV-mounted measurement systems;
  • Evaluate the penetration of laser scanners on UAVs through vegetation.
