JAXA to set up Multi-GNSS Monitoring Network

Japan: Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) called for applications for 60 hosted sites. The sites are part of Multi-GNSS Monitoring Network for multiple GNSS constellations in collaboration with the International GNSS Service (IGS).
One of the goals of the project is for JAXA to improve the accuracy of satellite orbit and clock estimation for new constellations, especially the Japanese Quazi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS). However, the benefit of the project is not limited to JAXA, as the network will be used for demonstration activities relating to the promotion of multi-GNSS technology, determining time offsets (among GNSS), and generating range error corrections and integrity information for the multiple GNSS constellations, for the user community in the Asia Oceania region. 
The deadline for applications is August 31, 2011.
