In the last few days, the LINKS team started to investigate how the FANTASTIC receivers and antenna could work in a very harsh environment: under a greenhouse!

It is interesting to observe the behavior of high end receivers in a greenhouse. In fact, the glass and metal frame could affect the carrier phase measurements. The objective of our new tests is to quantify this impact.

All the tests were carried on in collaboration with the Department of Agricultural, Forest and Food Sciences of the University of Turin – DISAFA at their premises in Grugliasco, near Turin. In the following video from our Twitter account, @GNSSFantastic, Gianluca Marucco from LINKS Foundation presents the new setup of our electric kart used to test the receivers and the antennas.
