Setting out and Surveying With Total Station

Description

If you work on a construction site in any capacity that involves setting out or surveying for new buildings you should know how to use a total station. This course will cover all you need to know to get started using a 2-man or 1-man robotic instrument. Learn how to quickly set up the total station. How to station and orient to a direction and backsight point. How to set out lines and levels for buildings, kerbs, manholes, gullies. Use Free-stationing to avoid obstacles when setting out, calculate areas and volumes, prepare drawings in Autocad to quickly set out sites and more. 

Attend Maxwell Geo Total Station Training Course and be more confident on the site. 

GPS Fundamentals and Enhancements

Military GPS Receiver Performance in Jamming (Military Only)

Description

This two and a half-day course is targeted at military operators, testers, and planners involved in the use and testing of GPS user equipment, who may not have electrical engineering backgrounds or deep familiarity with satellite-based navigation (satnav). The first 4.5 hours provide a comprehensive background at a conceptual level of satnav principles, without using equations or theory. The following 5.5 hours introduce numerical tools used in systems engineering for military use of GPS. 

This course is intended for  government military, government civilian employees, and government contractors..

GPS Operation for Engineers & Technical Professionals

Description

This is our technical foundation course. Take this 4-day course to gain a comprehensive understanding of GPS/GNSS system concepts, design and operation, including information on GPS signal processing by the receiver; techniques by which GPS obtains position, velocity and time; and a brief introduction to differential GPS (DGPS) and Kalman filtering. This course is similar to Course 356 (5 days), but with less emphasis on DGPS and Kalman filtering.   


This course is excellent for engineering staff who need to be rapidly brought up to speed on GNSS and GPS  in order to work more effectively. 

GPS & DGPS Operation for Engineers & Technical Professionals

Description

This five-day course offers a comprehensive introduction to GPS and DGPS technology, system concepts, design, operation, implementation and applications, including detailed information on the GPS signal, receiver processing, and the techniques by which GPS obtains position, velocity and time.  This course builds on the previous one by adding a full day of Differential GPS and two additional hours of Kalman filtering.

GPS Operations: DGPS, GPS Signals and Processing (On-Site

Description

This 3-day course skips the fundamentals altogether and dives right into a discussion of differential GPS, which continues throughout the week, together with an in-depth look at GPS signal processing, navigation message content, code tracking and receivers and concludes with Kalman filtering basics.    

This course is excellent for those engineers and technical professionals who know the basics of GPS but need more detail on DGPS, signals, receivers, antennas, navigation algorithms, Kalman filtering and practical aspects of GPS.

Applied Kalman Filtering with Emphasis on GPS-Aided Systems

Description

 This is an intensive, fast paced, on-site four-day course on Kalman filtering theory and Kalman filtering applications. Included is a discussion of linear, extended, unscented, and square root Kalman filters and their practical applications to real-time strapdown navigation and target tracking. Exposure to Information filters, 2nd and 3rd order extended Kalman filters, particle filters, integrity monitoring, and methods of smoothing is included. Emphasis is on practical applications, but sufficient supporting theory is provided for further research.

Using Advanced GPS/GNSS Signals and Systems

Description

This intensive 5-day course will enable attendees to achieve proficiency, not merely familiarity, with the essential aspects of using GPS/GNSS signals. It not only addresses current and future GPS signals, but also drills deeply into available details of signals from other satellite-based positioning and timing systems.    

Receiver processing techniques are described along with ways to characterize the performance of receiver processing. These processing techniques are customized to specific characteristics of signals from GPS and other satnav systems. Specialized topics, including dealing with interference and with multipath, differential satnav, and assisted satnav, are also addressed.
