Answering my own question, the paper has a lot of this information,
they used a CORS station that is part of the GEONET service in Japan.
The paper is here
They have both WiFi and a cellular modem available as connections for
the data stream.
Tyler - The Atmel chips used on the Arduino boards are
microcontrollers, so we are talking about 8-bit processors with Kbytes
of memory. So forget that. The Beagle Board is actually the best
price and smallest size that I have seen with those features. I bet
you already have an old laptop around though - you could skip the
single board computer entirely and use that. You have to get the raw
data GPS receiver, I splurged on a AEK4T (something like $349). The
price of an LEA4T module ($179) + Beagle Board ($149) + PC board is
about the same.
The paper also specifies the antenna they used (NovAtel GPS-702-GG)
for the rover.
