The on-field tests are proceeding well. Currently they are suspended for a couple of days because of the snow. Despite of the cold temperature, the team is performing several functional tests on field and is carrying out the first data collections with the FANTASTIC receiver and antennas.
The team is working on the performance assessment of the FANTASTIC devices, evaluating the Cumulative Distribution Function of the horizontal positioning error, which offers a clear and comprehensive view of the positioning performances. Particular attention is also devoted to the attitude estimation, although the assessment is quite challenging, due to the target performance of the devices under tests that is on the order of less than 1 degree. The experimental test set up has been refined few times to guarantee a fair assessment.
