OmniSTAR is a wide-area differential GPS service, using satellite broadcast techniques. Data from many widely-spaced Reference Stations is used in a proprietary multi-site solution to achieve sub-meter positioning over most land areas worldwide.
OmniSTAR is a member of the Fugro group of companies with offices throughout the world. A request form is provided for requesting additional information on areas and services.

How it Works :-

OmniSTAR's "VBS" sub-meter service generates corrections in each user's GPS receiver that are optimized for the user's location. OmniSTAR-capable L1 GPS receivers output both high quality RTCM-104 corrections for external use, and differentially corrected Lat/Long/Height in NMEA format. The Graphic shows how the VBS system operates.

  • - GPS satellites

  • - Multiple OmniSTAR GPS Reference Sites

  • - Send GPS corrections via lease line to

  • - Houston Network Control Center where data corrections are checked and repackaged for uplink to

  • - L- Band Geostationary Satellite

  • - Typical Geostationary L-Band satellite footprint.

  • - Correction data are received and applied real-time

The OmniSTAR HP and XP services operate is a similar manner, but require OmniSTAR-capable dual-frequency GPS receivers.
