I've got very good results (sub decimetre over short baselines) from moving baseline positioning in terms of the vector between two moving receivers. However, one receiver or other (the least mobile one) needs positioning some other way to give the whole system good absolute positioning.

Even with great receivers, the 'absolute' positioning for a moving baseline is very suspect.

On this topic, I've been using a commercial product for moving baseline processing. I'd be super keen to hear about FOSS alternatives!!
