An Exemplary Real-Time GNSS Network

For more than 20 years, SWEPOS has consistently demonstrated the full potential of real-time GNSS networks Standing in the main control center of Sweden’s real time GNSS network (RTN) system, I feel like I could be standing in NASA Mission Control. A marvel of infrastructure created by Lantmäteriet, the country’s mapping agency, the center has...

Capturing Today’s (and Tomorrow’s) Constellations

Access to all GNSS constellations provides better data, better results Enhancements made to improve the handling of satellite systems (also called constellations) and the increasing number of signals produced by these systems provide a tangible benefit to any solution that requires precise positioning.  Depending on the time of day and the geographical location, some of...
