VERIPOS Upgrades its Global Network of Reference Stations with Septentrio GPS/GLONASS/Galileo/BeiDou Receivers
VERIPOS, a global provider of precise satellite positioning solutions to the international offshore and marine industries, is concluding the upgrade of its entire global network of GNSS reference stations with high performance multi frequency GPS/GLONASS/Galileo/BeiDou receivers from Septentrio. VERIPOS owns and operates a network of over 80 reference stations worldwide that is used to determine estimates of the orbit and clock errors of multiple GNSS satellite constellations. VERIPOS uses these estimates to calculate corrections which are then broadcast to end users to significantly improve the accuracy of positioning. At the heart of the network is Septentrio PolaRx4, a fully featured reference receiver that provides high-quality tracking and measurement of all available and upcoming GNSS signals.

The upgrade of the VERIPOS global network of reference stations with the latest Septentrio reference receiver technology is another outcome of the multi-year collaboration between the two companies. Septentrio also supplies VERIPOS with multi-frequency GNSS and heading receivers for their marine business including the LD series of integrated mobile units which deliver the complete range of VERIPOS augmentation services to its customers world-wide.

“Septentrio reference stations are renowned for their excellent data-quality and robustness,” commented Bobby Johnson, Chief Technical Officer of VERIPOS. “Septentrio technology enables us to provide a full range of services and to remotely manage and upgrade the hardware to enhanced features, which is crucial for managing a worldwide reference network, where the equipment is often not easily accessible.”

Septentrio introduces refined GNSS Heading and Positioning at Oceanology International
Septentrio is featuring an upgraded line of compact GNSS receivers at Oceanology International 2014. Septentrio receivers have been designed for continuous GNSS operations including receiving L-Band PPP corrections even during nearby Iridium transmissions. These receivers integrate novel RTK models that constantly sense their environment to optimally adapt to situations where GNSS signals can be distorted by reflective surfaces, and to continuously deliver optimized accuracies. The upgraded receivers also include unique countermeasures to ionospheric disturbances, maintaining accurate and stable measurements during high solar storms.
