SUNNYVALE, Calif. —Trimble announced that its Trimble RTX-based correction services now support the Galileo constellation. As a true five-constellation technology that uses GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, QZSS and now Galileo satellites, Trimble RTX delivers improved real-time positioning performance to its users worldwide. 

With accessibility to the Galileo constellation, users now have visibility to more satellites, which can be advantageous for extreme latitudinal positions or in environments where line-of-sight may be limited. Surveyors, farmers, mapping and GIS professionals now have a more versatile and robust correction solution wherever they may work, even in the most challenging terrain locales. 

Benefits of adding Galileo to Trimble RTX Correction Services includes:

Increasing the number of in-view satellites, improving the accuracy and reliability of corrections
Improving positioning integrity using observations from additional satellites to better mitigate errors 
Operating at higher cut-off angles, delivering better performance in urban canyons and other less than optimal environments 
Minimizing multipath and interference through the addition of available satellite signals


Galileo support is available today with any Trimble RTX correction service including:  CenterPoint RTX, FieldPoint RTX, RangePoint RTX and ViewPoint RTX using a compatible Trimble and Spectra Precision Galileo-ready receiver or display.
