Satellite Based Augmentation System

Lockheed Martin has a well-established footprint in the Australian space community, with the establishment of a Tracking, Telemetry and Control ground station at Uralla, New South Wales, around 20 years ago.

Since the initial investment, Lockheed Martin Space has identified a significant number of potential growth opportunities and technology development upon which potential new business activities could emerge.

Lockheed Martin was pleased to operate the Space Based Augmentation System test bed for Geoscience Australia.   The test-bed demonstrated the utility and performance of a second generation SBAS system.

The SBAS test-bed used signals from both the Global Positioning System (GPS) and the Galileo constellation, and dual frequencies, to achieve even greater integrity and accuracy from the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS).

These high accuracy and high integrity GNSS signals are critical to enable systems for a wide variety of industries requiring high accuracy and high confidence positioning.
