Light house
Typical placement for DGPS / DGNSS reference and monitoring stations.

The KONGSBERG DRS 500 is a complete DGPS / DGNSS reference station built into a 19-inch rack module for easy installation and maintenance. The KONGSBERG DRS 500 contains an all-in-view, 72-channel Global Navigation Satellite System - GNSS receiver fully controlled by a PC board computer and software.

The KONGSBERG DRS 500 is a DGPS / DGNSS reference station designed for permanent installation as a stand-alone system or as part of regional GNSS infrastructure systems. The electronic components are built into a 19-inch rack module. The software offers full remote control and overview over configuration and status parameters. Multiple output of Radio Technical Commission for Maritime Services - RTCM corrections is supported. The KONGSBERG DRS 500 is designed to be integrated with the KONGSBERG IMS 500 monitor stations and GNSS NetWorks control centre.

KONGSBERG IMS 500 - DGPS / DGNSS monitor station

The KONGSBERG IMS 500 is a complete DGPS / DGNSS monitor station built into a 19-inch rack module for easy installation and maintenance. The KONGSBERG IMS 500 contains an all-in-view, 72-channel GNSS receiver fully controlled by a PC board computer and software. Radio receivers like e.g. IALA beacon, can be connected in order to monitor several RTCM signals simultaneously.

The KONGSBERG IMS 500 is designed for permanent installations as a stand-alone system or as part of national or regional GNSS infrastructure systems. The electronic components are built into a 19-inch rack module and all components are fully remotely operated. The software offers full control and overview of configuration and status parameters in an intuitive graphical user interface.

The KONGSBERG IMS 500 is designed to be integrated with KONGSBERG DRS 500 reference stations and a GNSS NetWorks control centre by dial-up or permanent communication lines.

Great flexibility for reception of DGPS / DGNSS corrections by several high-speed communication lines is offered for monitoring of multiple DGPS / DGNSS stations and distribution systems.
