    Veritas contract for Veripos

    Projects and Operations // March 30, 2006

    Houston-based Veritas Geophysical has appointed Veripos of Aberdeen as primary positioning provider for its entire worldwide fleet of seismic survey vessels under a multi-million US dollar contract covering a two-year period with options for future extension.

    Under the contract, Veripos will provide continuous high-precision positioning via its Ultra Precise Point Positioning (PPP) service as well as its independent multi-station single-frequency Standard and dual-frequency Standard Plus Differential GPS network facilities via fully redundant global networks and multiple delivery satellites.

    The proprietary services ensure optimum reliability and precision with those for DGPS being fully compatible with most types of GPS receiver using standards such as the established RTCM SC104 V2.1 correction format.

    Service accuracies typically range from 10cm to 2m globally.
