s-RTK: for precise real-time service for positioning using a single base station

For users that have a requirement for access to a single base station, RTKnetwest provide a service known as s-RTK for positioning in real-time. Accuracies of ±2cm are achievable as long as the maximum distance between reference and rover/receiver does not exceed 10 kilometres. A greater distance increases clock errors and atmospherically caused signal delays. These effects result in impairment in the accuracy of the positioning data obtained (PPM error). 

Higher accuracies can be achieved using just a single dual frequency rover/receiver and there is no longer a need to have your own RTK base station, increasing efficiency which leads to saving time and money.

Users connect into the system using a wireless mobile connection. Some of the modern survey controllers have modems built in and only require a SIM card to be inserted to gain an internet connection. Most older style controllers can be connected to the internet via a Bluetooth mobile phone or WiFi hotspot. The only limit to coverage within the network is the limitations in mobile data coverage provided by Telstra.

All known manufacturers are supported including but not limited to Trimble, Topcon and Leica. See our coverage map.

Realtime correction data is broadcast in CMR, CMR+, RTCM2.3 and RTCM 3.0 formats.
