Original Abstract

A mobile automated system for astronomical position determination has been developed by the team of the Department of geodesy, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Brno University of Technology. The measuring system is based on a precise motor-driven total station. The measuring system was given the name of MAAS – Mobile Automated Astronomical System – and, at present, it exists as a single specimen labelled as MAAS-1. The system was extensively tested in 2009 and 2010 and the results proved its feasibility for a rapid determination of astronomical coordinates.
