On June 1, Trimble announced that its Trimble RTX™-based correction services now support the Galileo constellation (in addition to GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, QZSS, and now Galileo satellites) to deliver improved real-time positioning performance to its users worldwide.
With access to the Galileo constellation, users can now see more satellites, which can help in extreme latitudinal positions or in environments where line-of-sight may be limited.
Benefits of adding Galileo to Trimble RTX Correction Services includes:
- Increasing the number of in-view satellites, improving accuracy
- Improving positioning integrity using observations from additional satellites
- Operating at higher cut-off angles (beneficial for urban canyons and other less ideal environments)
"Trimble is continually investing in its correction service technology to remain at the forefront of the industry," said Mark Richter, marketing director for Trimble's Networks and Services business. "Our focus is to ensure that the latest GNSS developments are leveraged to continue to deliver productivity improvements for our customers across the globe."
