The geodetic measurement lab contains a 26-metre measuring track onto which a mobile instrumented sled is installed. A computer system controls the movement of the sled, which allows its relative movements to be predefined and precisely measured with a laser interferometer. This enables researchers to calibrate various geodetic measuring instruments and carry out a number of measurement-related testing situations for research purposes, e.g. photogrammetric experiments. In addition to other testing stations with steel and granite slabs attached to concrete bases, the laboratory is also equipped with measuring probes (for path measurement), digital multimeters (for measuring electrical current, voltage and temperature) and frequency counters.
An 8-m tall shaft at the end of the laboratory is also available for special testing situations.
