Client: Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education


Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) refers to constellations of satellites that provide a signal that enables users to determine their position anywhere outdoors. Augmentation services (augmented GNSS), which provide greater accuracy and reliability to the signal, are delivering significant economic benefits in several key sectors of the economy, as well as environmental, safety and other social benefits. 

This report provides an overview of economic and social benefits, experience, and prospects for the use of augmented GNSS in agriculture, mining, construction, utilities, surveying and land management, road transport, rail, maritime, and aviation activities.
