California, USA, 28 June 2006: Trimble announced on June 28 that it has supplied Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) reference stations and VRS (Virtual Reference Station) software from Trimble to establish a GNSS infrastructure network in Western Australia.
Located in Perth, Western Australia’s capital, the high-precision network is built solely with Trimble NetR5 reference stations and is the first VRS network with GNSS capabilities. The GNSS network supports both the next-generation GPS L2C and L5 signals and GLONASS signals adding greater flexibility, fast initialization times and more robust signal tracking for positioning applications.
The VRS network provides a geo-spatial infrastructure for surveying, engineering and GIS professionals. The Perth infrastructure will supply fast and accurate positioning information for a variety of applications including surveying, urban planning, urban and rural construction, environmental monitoring, resource and territory management, disaster prevention and relief, precision agriculture, scientific research and transportation management. The Perth VRS installation follows more than 80 Trimble infrastructure networks throughout the world.
