INS is initially installing six MicroZ CGRS receivers, which it will manage through Ashtech Geodetic Base Station Software (GBSS) and Ashtech Micro-Manager software.
The MicroZ CGRS was selected for the Polish CORS network because of its ability to communicate via the Internet and provide data in FTP or HTTP file formats, enabling us to efficiently collect and distribute GPS data," said Tadeusz Poplawski, a GPS consultant to INS.
Micro-Manager software is designed to support the Ashtech MicroZ CGRS reference station, enabling users to inspect receiver health and status; configure receiver parameters; download data files; and upload firmware to the MicroZ.
Thales (tal-less) Navigation, a leading global provider of GPS solutions including the Magellan(R) and Ashtech(R) product lines, announced today that it is providing Ashtech MicroZ(TM) CGRS
reference stations to Poland for a pilot GPS CORS (continuously operating reference station) network in the Polish province of Silesia.
