Europe News:  Trimble to build Greece’s GNSS infrastructure network

Trimble is to supply its Trimble VRS™ network hardware and software to establish a nationwide Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) infrastructure network in Greece.

Covering approximately 132,000 square kilometres of mainland and islands, the Hellenic Positioning System (HEPOS) network is expected to be one of the largest GNSS networks in the world.

The HEPOS network is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2007.

The Trimble VRS network will provide a fixed geospatial infrastructure for surveying, engineering and GIS professionals that enables high accuracy real-time kinematic (RTK) GNSS positioning.

HEPOS will consist of approximately 100 Trimble NetRS® GPS Receivers and 100 Trimble Zephyr™ Geodetic Antennas, as well as Trimble GPSNetTM and RTKNet™ software to achieve full Trimble VRS functionality.

Trimble will also provide complete network set up, deployment and operation during the initial start-up period.

The nationwide Greece network follows more than 100 Trimble infrastructure installations throughout the world including: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Lithuania, Malaysia, The Netherlands, New Caledonia, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic South Africa, Serbia, Singapore, Slovenia, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the UK and US.
