As an important optimization estimation theory, Kalman filter is applied to deal with many kinds of dynamic data, especially for GPS data and inertial navigation data. In this paper, the Kalman filter is used to solve the two key problems-integer ambiguity calculation and cycle slip detection and correction, and then a real time kinematic (RTK) positioning technique based on Kalman filter is proposed. The experimental results show that the presented method can obtain the positioning accuracy of RTK up to centimeter for data format in GPS.
