Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS)

SBAS Central


The test transmission service that was part of the Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) Test-bed project has been discontinued as of 31 July 2020. This service was intended for testing and development purposes only and is not a permanent SBAS for the region. We anticipate a similar initial service to resume in 2021, and this will be developed to become a fully operational SBAS for the Australasian region by 2023.
If you require precise positioning information while the test transmission is unavailable, Geoscience Australia and Land Information New Zealand also provide access to accurate and reliable data streams from national networks of Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS). These data streams can be used by compatible equipment for single base real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning.
