Inmarsat to partner with Geoscience Australia

Inmarsat partners with Geoscience Australia for SBAS Testbed.


Asia-Pacific Geoscience Australia GNSS Inmarsat magicSBAS SBAS

 

Inmarsat has signed an agreement with Geoscience Australia, an agency of the Commonwealth of Australia, to support a collaborative research project aimed at achieving enhanced positioning accuracy and integrity by augmenting signals from multiple Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) over the Australian continent.

The research project, which is scheduled to run for two years, will see Inmarsat deploying the transponder on-board its L-band Asia Pacific (APAC) Region satellite, Inmarsat-4 F1 (I-4F1), to provide the space component of the Second Generation Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS) Testbed. GNSS signals are critical tools for industries requiring exact precision and high confidence. For the first time anywhere in the world, this project will demonstrate how the use of signals from multiple GNSS, i.e. GPS and Galileo, and SBAS signals broadcast on dual frequencies (GPS L1 and L5), can achieve enhanced navigation performance in terms of user positioning integrity and accuracy.
