Workshop 2017 - Urs Hugentobler - IGS and the IGMA Task Force of ICG initiated a Joint GNSS Monitoring and Assessment Trial Project with the goal to implement an authoritative performance monitoring system for all participating GNSSs, utilizing existing IGS monitoring infrastructure and joining resources. Through the Pilot Project, user benefits of consolidated and publicly available monitoring system products and combined use of multi-constellations are to be demonstrated. In the Pilot Project algorithms and methods shall be developed, compared, and assessed for computing consistent and reliable monitoring parameters based on tracking information for all GNSS systems. 17 groups contribute to the project with monitoring stations, as DC, and as ACs. The presentation gives an update of the planned activities.
