Tracking New Signals from Space: GPS Modernization and Trimble R-Track Technology white paper, Trimble 2004
The US DoD (Department of Defense) is modernizing GPS (Global Positioning System) with new civilian satellite signals, thus presenting a challenge to companies who develop surveying products utilizing GPS technology.

FAMCAR Approach for Efficient Multi-Carrier Am., GNSS 2004
In the past years, starting with an existing technique a new and very efficient ambiguity resolution algorithm has been developed.

eRTK: A New Generation of Solutions for Centimeter-Accurate Wide-Area Real-Time Positioning white paper, Trimble 2001
Trimble has developed a new RTK technology, termed eRTK, that further enhances GPS surveying. A highly flexible choice of infrastructure and communications media, coupled with eRTK rover technology provides a unique new range of solutions for wide area RTK coverage which can be easily customized to meet exact and specific user requirements.

Galileo Modernized GPS - A New Challenge to Network RTK, ION 2004

Several preliminary studies have demonstrated that with the third/fourth frequency available from GALILEO and modernized GPS, the reliability and productivity of single base OTF (on the fly) initializations at the rover increase dramatically when comparing with a dual frequency RTK system.

Factorized Multi-Carrier Ambiguity Resolution, ION 2004
The proposed addition of a third carrier to the modernized GPS as well as the implementation of three carriers in the planned Galileo system will boost the performance of carrier-phase based positioning within the next decade. In principle, highly-reliable instantaneous (one-epoch) ambiguity resolution becomes feasible for a broad range of applications.

GPS Antenna Design and Performance Advancements: The Trimble Zephyr Antenna white paper, Trimble 2001
The Trimble Zephyr and Zephyr Geodetic antennas are two new types of survey-grade, dual-frequency, GPS antenna. They are designed to match the performance of the chokering antenna, while being smaller, lighter, and significantly less expensive.
