We do a lot of mapping and have several drones with RTK enabled GNSS receivers. We’ve come full circle twice on what we prefer; RTK or PPK. Our current preference is RTK. If you have access to CORS, it is fast and easy, requiring little extra time or effort. The big limitation in the hills of WV is internet access. Due to the mountainous terrain and rural environment, we have large swaths of land with no cellular access, especially in the coal fields were we do most of our flying.
I don’t think something like weBoost from Wilson Amplifies will work consistently and reliably. So I am spec’ing out a satellite based internet access system. To ensure I purchase the right equipment, I need to know the bandwidth requirements for RCTM messages. If anyone can give me an approximate bandwidth, I’d be grateful.
