CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Hosting sites for Multi-GNSS Monitoring Network
Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) is pleased to announce the start of the CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Hosting sites for multi-GNSS monitoring network from December 14,2011. The project is a contribution to the establishment of global, continuous observation network for multiple GNSS constellations in collaboration with the International GNSS Service (IGS). The project is open for applications for 60 hosted sites in all for multi-GNSS receivers and antennas to be provided by JAXA.
One of the goals of the project is for JAXA to improve the accuracy of satellite orbit and clock estimation for new constellations, especially the Japanese Quazi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS). However, the benefit of the project is not limited to JAXA, as the network will be used for demonstration activities relating to the promotion of multi-GNSS technology, determining time offsets (among GNSS), and generating range error corrections and integrity information for the multiple GNSS constellations, for the user community in the Asia Oceania region.
As the results of the first accepting term from June 1, 2011 to August 31, 9 sites are selected (Link to the material). However more sites are required to achieve the above-mentioned accuracy improvement. Therefore JAXA reopens the acceptance.
The deadline for applications is February 15, 2012. For further information about the project and the application process please visit the website(http://www.satnavi.jaxa.jp/e/news/qz-1112142_e.html) or contact JAXA at firstname.lastname@example.org
