A. Program Objective
The long term objective of the GSAR Program is to improve positioning operations and services in support of transportation and commerce on a national basis by addressing the following science priorities : Methods and approaches to Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) carrier phase positioning over long distances, including On-The-Fly (OTF) capability, Kalman filtering, and single-epoch methods; GPS carrier phase ambiguity resolution, including performance under bias; Computation and utilization of ionosphere models and impacts on RTK positioning; Computation and utilization of troposphere models and impacts on RTK positioning; Multipath suppression, including antenna design, receiver hardware design, and software receiver algorithms; GPS satellite calibration, including satellite interchannel bias, antenna phase center locations, and antenna phase center variation; Methods for GPS receiver antenna calibration, including receiver interchannel bias, antenna phase center locations and antenna phase center variation; Models and approaches for precision GPS orbit and satellite clock solutions; Design of national augmentation infrastructures supporting centimeter-level positioning.
Other national priorities which will be considered are: High-resolution national geoid modeling; Efficient orthometric height determination; Datum transformations and relationships, including tidal datums; Crustal motion models, including subsidence effects; Fusion of geometric data (photogrammetry, LIDAR, interferometric synthetic aperture radar (IFSAR) with radiometric data (imaging spectrometers); Enhanced methodologies to support shoreline mapping of the Alaska coastline.
B. Program Priorities
NOAA will give sole attention to individual proposals addressing the identified science priorities listed below. Future opportunities may cover related topics or may address broader topics.
The names, affiliations, and phone numbers of relevant NGS focal points are provided. Prospective applicants should communicate with these focal points for information on priorities within a specific study topic. Focal points cannot assist in the conceptual design and specific elements to be included in a proposal. Applicants should send completed proposals to the NOAA/NGS program office identified in Section IV.F., rather than to individual focal points.
This opportunity is focused on a specific problem: Analysis, and Methodology for Layered National Spatial Reference System Adjustment.
