Trimble Adds Galileo Support to its VRS Now Correction Service to Improve Network Positioning Performance in Europe Print E-mail

Improving Positioning Accuracy, Reliability and Integrity

Sunnyvale, Calif., June 15, 2017—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that its Trimble® VRS Now™ networks—powered by Trimble Pivot™ Platform software—can now process Galileo observation data in its network-modeled Virtual Reference Station (VRS) solution. As a true five-constellation technology using GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, QZSS and now Galileo observations, Trimble VRS Now delivers even better real-time positioning performance for customers using Trimble networks throughout much of Europe.
With accessibility to the Galileo constellation, users now have visibility to more satellites, which can be advantageous in environments where line of sight may be limited. Surveyors, mapping and GIS professionals and other industries now have a more versatile and robust VRS Now correction solution. 
Adding Galileo to Trimble VRS Now technology provides significant benefits by:
• Increasing the number of in-view satellites, improving the accuracy and reliability of corrections
• Improving positioning integrity using observations from additional satellites to better mitigate errors
• Operating at higher cut off angles, delivering better performance in urban canyons and other less than optimal environments
• Minimizing multipath and interference through the addition of available satellite signals

“VRS Now Europe is powered by the Trimble Pivot Platform—the only VRS networking software on the market today capable of using Galileo observation data—improving positioning performance and integrity for VRS Now users,” said Mark Richter, director of marketing for Trimble’s Networks and Services business. “No other VRS service provider using five-constellation support has a larger footprint in Europe.”
Galileo support is available with any Trimble VRS Now subscription in Belgium, The Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Luxembourg, The Netherlands and Sweden using a compatible GNSS receiver or display.
