    Veripos establishes Peruvian DGPS service

    News // May 13, 2005
    Veripos has extended the South American sector of its global Differential GPS service with the establishment of new facilities in Peru serving offshore users in the Pacific region.

    These comprise two land-based reference stations at the coastal cities of Chiclayo and Lima providing rapid update rates and low data latency, with correction data relayed via Inmarsat satellites.

    As with other Veripos global coverage, the new DGPS network permits computing of multiple reference station solutions for added reliability and precision.

    Fully compatible with all types of GPS receiver using the RTCM SC104 V2.3 format, the single and dual frequency service ensures enhanced positional accuracies and performance while also extending the validity of operations during any periods of heightened ionospheric activity.

    Typical accuracies are between 1m and 3m. The new service extends Veripos' existing pan-American DGPS services in North America, the Gulf of Mexico, Trinidad and Brazil and follows recent extension of its multi-station Brazilian network to include complementary Glonass facilities as a secondary GNSS satellite positioning source.
