Veripos Extends Positioning Network with New Falklands Station
05 January 2010
Veripos, a world leader in the provision of precise Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) positioning solutions to the world offshore oil and gas industries, has extended its multi-source Differential GPS service for South Atlantic and Southern Ocean regions with the establishment of new reference station facilities in the Falkland Islands.
The new station will help facilitate further seamless, fully redundant high-accuracy positioning support for a wide range of offshore positioning and survey tasks by delivering augmentation on the 98W and AORW high power Inmarsat communications beams. User guidance on how to manually add Falklands to Veripos' Verify station listings are located at the Knowledge Base section of its Online Support System (VOSS) at http://help.veripos.com/ .
Commenting on the development, Bobby Johnson, Technical Director of Veripos, says that the new reference station has been installed in response to marked increases in offshore activity within South Atlantic and Southern Ocean regions.
