Projects Sought for Satellite Based Augmentation System

Home / News | posted on 07 04 2017

The Australia and New Zealand Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information (CRCSI) has today called for expressions of interest (EOI) to participate in the recently announced Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) testbed.

CRCSI is seeking interested organisations and companies across Australia and New Zealand to test the positioning signals on the SBAS testbed. Participation is sought across a range of sectors including: agriculture, aviation, construction, maritime, resources, rail, road, spatial, utilities and consumer. The testbed has been established to demonstrate and quantify the benefits of SBAS technology in the region, particularly through the early adoption in emerging application domains. Due to their geographic location, the accuracy of satellite positioning systems used in Australia and New Zealand is less than optimal. To overcome this, the use of augmentation systems has been identified to improve their capabilities. As announced in February 2017, CRCSI partners Geoscience Australia and Land Information New Zealand, together with global companies GMV, Inmarsat and Lockheed Martin will implement the SBAS testbed to evaluate three positioning signals for improved positioning accuracy and integrity. First transmissions of a single frequency SBAS signal are expected in June 2017, with a precise point positioning signal (PPP) available from August and the next generation dual-frequency, multi-constellation (DFMC) SBAS signal coming on-line from October.
