[G07-2-03] Recent Activities of the GGOS Standing Committee on Performance Simulations and Architectural Trade-Offs (PLATO)
Developing next generation space-geodetic stations with improved technology and system performance;
Improving the ground network configuration in view of global coverage and co-locations;
Improving the number and accuracy of surveys between co-located stations;
Deploying, improving and optimizing space-based co-locations.
In order to support these activities, GGOS established the Standing Committee "Performance Simulations and Architectural Trade-Offs (PLATO)“. To achieve progress in the topic mentioned above the PLATO members develop improved analysis methods using all existing observation data and co-locations of space-geodetic techniques. In addition, extensive simulations are carried out in order to investigate future improvements and optimization of the ground network, the space segment and different observation scenarios. These simulations will help to assess future data product quality based on projected network configuration and performance. Since 2015, PLATO acts also as Joint Working Group under IAG's Sub-Commission 1.1.
This presentation summarizes the activities within the Standing Committee PLATO and gives an overview on our ongoing studies. Preliminary results will be highlighted and first recommendations will be given.
