OmniSTAR VBS

Global Reliable Sub-Metre Accuracy

OmniSTAR VBS is the foundational “sub-metre” level of service. It is an L1 only, code phase pseudo-range solution. Pseudo-range correction data from OmniSTAR’s regional reference sites is broadcast via satellite link to the user receiver. These data are used, together with atmospheric modeling and knowledge of the receiver’s location, to generate an internal RTCM SC104 correction specific to that location. This correction is then applied to the real time solution. A typical 24-hour sample of OmniSTAR VBS will show a 2-sigma (95%) of significantly less than 1 metre horizontal position error and the 3-sigma (99%) horizontal error will be close to 1 metre.

OmniSTAR XP

15 cm Worldwide Service

OmniSTAR XP is a worldwide dual frequency high accuracy solution. It is a L1/L2 solution requiring a dual frequency receiver. Orbit and Clock correction data is used together with atmospheric corrections derived from the dual frequency data. By utilizing carrier phase measurement, very high accuracy can be achieved. OmniSTAR XP service provides short term accuracy of 1-2 inches and long term repeatability of better than 10 centimeters, 95%CEP. It is especially suited for Agricultural automatic steering systems. While it is slightly less accurate than OmniSTAR HP, it is available worldwide and its accuracy is a significant improvement over regional Differential Systems such as WAAS.

OmniSTAR G2

GPS + GLONASS

OmniSTAR G2 represents the most recent advancement in OmniSTAR subscription service offerings. It is a worldwide dual frequency high-accuracy solution which uses Orbit and Clock correction data. OmniSTAR G2 includes GLONASS satellites and GLONASS correction data in the solution. The addition of GLONASS to the solution significantly increases the number of satellites available which is useful when faced with conditions that limit satellite visibility, such as terrain, vegetation or buildings. OmniSTAR G2 service provides short-term accuracy of 1-2 inches and long term repeatability of better than 10 centimerers, 95%CEP. It is especially suited for operations in areas where trees or buildings may block the view of the sky and in areas affected by scintillation during times of high sunspot activity.

OmniSTAR HP

10 cm High Performance

The OmniSTAR HP service is the most accurate solution available. It is a L1/L2 solution requiring a dual frequency receiver. Data from OmniSTAR’s network of reference sites is utilized together with atmospheric corrections. Carrier phase measurement is used to maximize accuracy. OmniSTAR HP will usually have a 2-sigma (95%) horizontal error of about 6 centimetres and a 99% horizontal error of less than 10 centimetres. It is particularly useful for Agricultural Machine guidance and many surveying tasks. It operates in real time and without the need for local Base Stations or telemetry links. OmniSTAR HP is a true advance in the use of GPS for on-the-go precise positioning.
