European Precise Positioning

Ground-based Regional GNSS Augmentation
Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) like GPS, GLONASS and, soon, Galileo are used for many positioning and navigation applications. But existing GNSS accuracy and reliability do not satisfy all clients. Ground-based augmentation systems provide GNSS observation data and real-time corrections for high-precision positioning and navigation. EUPOS is an initiative to build and run such systems with uniform standards and full-scale accuracy in fifteen Central and Eastern European countries. The European Position Determination System (EUPOS) is both an international initiative and a project to establish a uniform Differential GNSS basis infrastructure in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). Uniform ground-based multifunctional DGNSS... (read more)
