DIFFERENTIAL GPS (DGPS) WITH WAAS OR OMNISTAR CORRECTION
A vehicle with a GPS antenna receives GPS signals from the GPS satellite constellation. The Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) and OmniSTAR® services have many GPS receivers at known reference locations that send the correction messages to control stations, which then uplink the message to a geostationary satellite (WAAS or OmniSTAR). The geostationary satellite then sends the correction message to the GPS antenna on the vehicle, which applies the correction.
The Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) was developed by the Federal Aviation Administration to augment the Global Positoning System (GPS), with the goal of improving its accuracy, integrity and availablebility. It is available to all at no charge.
OmniSTAR VBS is best suited for:
OmniSTAR XP is best suited for:
OmniSTAR XP is a worldwide, dual-frequency, high-accuracy solution. It is an L1/L2 solution requiring a dual-frequency receiver. While it is slightly less accurate than OmniSTAR HP, it is available worldwide.
OmniSTAR HP is a more accurate solution. Like the XP service, it is an L1/L2 solution requiring a dual-frequency receiver. Data from OmniSTAR?s network of reference sites is utilized together with atmospheric corrections. It operates in real time and without the need for local base stations or telemetry links.
CenterPoint RTX is best suited for:
