Workshop 2017 - Tim Springer - The poster will present the quality and consistency of the products from the ESA/ESOC Analysis Centre over the last years. Besides our routine products we will show some of our multi-GNSS results. The modernization of the existing and the deployment of new Global Navigation Satellite Systems introduces new satellites, new orbits, new code modulations and additional frequencies. Improvements in our IGS products will strongly depend on our understanding of these new systems. We are focusing on: satellite force models, handling of different attitude modes, satellite PCO/PCV values, and the handling of the different signals and biases. One key issue here is the increasing area to mass ratio of the GNSS satellites which makes them more sensitive to the radiation pressure.
