Today’s high-accuracy Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) market, meaning positioning at the 1-100 mm level, is mainly a field for universities and scientific institutes. In the near future, this market will expand to include highly specialised commercial companies. PosiTim wants to become the main player in this very technical field by hiring and educating the required specialists and ensuring the acquisition of software solutions and services suited to this “(rapidly) growing” market. In addition, the modernisation of both the existing GNSS systems (the US-based GPS and the Russian-based GLONASS) and the advent of new GNSS systems like Europe’s Galileo and China’s Beidou/Compass, have greatly enhanced this market’s potential. Regional augmentation systems such as WAAS, EGNOS, and QZSS have also contributed to the overall market. In fact, new systems and other modernisations will require very significant software upgrades and thus also open up the market for new software.
PosiTim GNSS solutions, powered by the ESA/ESOC GNSS software NAPEOS, facilitates significantly improved performance and unification in GNSS systems, leading to positioning accurate down to the millimetre. PosiTim GNSS services also offers a very short time-tomarket to all GNSS service providers and network operators.
PosiTim offers high-accuracy turnkey GNSS solutions and services that can be used for a multitude of applications, including:
- Oil and gas offshore and maritime positioning services (centimetre accuracy)
- Seismic monitoring (millimetre accuracy)
- GNSS-assisted weather predictions
- Precise orbit determination of low Earth orbiting satellites (e.g. GMES)
- Real-time precise positioning of any GNSS receiver anywhere in the world
Our GNSS services will help our customers get up and running in a very short time by avoiding the lengthy and cumbersome process of learning and understanding scientific GNSS processing packages. Our turnkey GNSS solutions will empower our customers to achieve their goals rapidly and without needing to find and hire GNSS experts.
