Sector: Scientific Innovation
Country location: Australia, Japan
Grantee: Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information
Through this project, Australia’s Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information’s (CRCSI) Positioning Program will continue investigating Japan’s Quasi Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) L-band (L6) signal for delivery of real-time correction messages to support PPP-RTK (Precise Point Positioning-Real Time Kinematic) in Australia. QZSS currently augments Global Positioning System signals (GPS) and the addition of PPP-RTK capability potentially means higher levels of accuracy, availability and reliability for Australian users.
Adoption of this technology will facilitate real-time, centimetre-level positioning capabilities in areas where traditional Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS) and ground communication infrastructure is sparse and/or not available.
The three-day workshop will promote Australia-Japan scientific collaboration to further assess QZSS applicability as a local Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) for use in precise Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) applications in Australia.
