RTKnetwest – Benefits

RTKnetwest offers highly accurate real-time positioning services through a network of RTK base stations across WA that is accessible through the mobile phone network.


Our clients see the value of our services in the following areas:

A true network    The 23 base stations that make up the network now cover the coastal strip from Lancelin to Karridale, and east to Pingelly. This is an area of 80,000km2 that includes over 85% of the state’s population. Further expansion of the network to the north and east will be supported based on user driven requirements. 
     

     
Continuous operation   The system is available 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  Users simply connect into the system to receive reliable and accurate positioning information. (Dependent on Telstra or other communication service and satellite availability)
     

     
Get started in an instant      Subscribe to the network and be online within minutes
     

     
Precise positioning   The network can provide better than ±2cm accuracy for X, Y coordinates and better than ±4cm vertically.  This ensures optimum results for positioning work with virtually no margin of error and with repeat, centimetre accuracy.
   
     

     
Save capital/ expenses  
  • No high insurance cost for unattended GNSS base station.
  • Low cost subscription from under $29 or $14 per day per receiver.
  • No longer require localised base station.
  • Ability to separate existing base/rover configurations into 2 rovers.
     

     
Supports the toughest conditions   Positioning in undulating terrain is often a challenge.  The RTKnetwest network will always offer better signals and greater precision than a single ground base station.
     

     
One man team   Positioning work carried out without the need for additional personnel.
     

     
Save Time   No lost time setting up base stations over known control points or SSMs (Standard Survey Marks).
     

     
Greater security   No base station is required, therefore no need to worry about finding a secure site – thereby enhancing security. No reliance on additional equipment e.g. cables.
     

     
Benefit from our expertise and personal support   RTKnetwest works with its clients to use, better understand, and achieve the best results from this technology.  Being experts in the field of satellite based positioning systems, our ability to help goes well beyond the provision of the network. 
     

     
Significant productivity and efficiency benefits   Together, these combined benefits help you to realise great savings in time, effort, and eliminate any rework.

The success of RTKnetwest is based on providing a personalised, efficient service to each client, and dedication to the effective introduction of the technological advances that have completely changed Real Time Kinematic GNSS applications. The constant monitoring of the network, expansion of the network as demand dictates, and ongoing improvements of hardware are aspects of RTKnetwest’s commitment and aspirations in providing a sound network. The success is further measured by level of interest attained in this technology and ability to delivery GNSS solutions well into the next decade.
