IGN analysis center report - Current status and future plans
Event: 2014 IDS Workshop
Session: IDS processing for ITRF2013
Presentation type: Type Oral
The IGN DORIS Analysis Center submitted a full time series of weekly SINEX solutions for station positions and Earth rotation parameters in view of ITRF2013. We will first present a description of the models and analysis strategy used for these computations and the differences from ITRF2008 computations, showing related improvements observed in geodetic derived products. We will also discuss other possible choices that were not made, due to lack of time or incomplete testing, as well as some open issues. Finally, we will discuss our plans for the future and present some early results as well as ongoing research of activity. In particular, to be ready to process future DORIS satellites, we started to incorporate DORIS phase and pseudo-range data processing capability in the GIPSY-OASIS II software package. We project to use these new types of DORIS data to estimate phase center variation (PCV) maps for DORIS ground stations as well as for recent DORIS satellites.
