[en] When employing observations from multiple Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) the performance of real-time (RT) GNSS meteorology can be improved. In this paper, we describe an operational RT system for extracting zenith tropospheric delay (ZTD) using a modified version of the PPP-wizard. Multi-GNSS, including GPS, GLONASS and Galileo, observation streams are processed using a RT PPP strategy based on RT satellite orbit/clock products from CNES. A continuous experiment for 30 days is conducted, in which the RT observation streams of 20 globally distributed stations are processed. The initialization time and accuracy of the RT troposphere products using single/multi-system observations are evaluated. The effect of RT PPP ambiguity resolution is also evaluated. The results reveal that the RT troposphere products based on single system observations can fulfill the requirements of meteorological application, in which the GPS-only solution is better than the GLONASS-only solution in both initialization and accuracy. The performance can also be improved by applying RT PPP ambiguity resolution and utilizing multi-GNSS observations. Specifically, we notice that the ambiguity resolution is more effective in improving the accuracy, whereas the initialization process can be better accelerated by multi-GNSS observations. Combining all systems, RT troposphere products with an average accuracy of about 8 mm in ZTD can be achieved after an initialization process of approximately 9 minutes, which supports the application of multi-GNSS observations and ambiguity resolution for RT meteorological applications.
