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. Further adoption of augmented GNSS services by industry, and new thinking about how to apply them, offers the promise of further economic and social benefits in the future.
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.
Augmented GNSS services have delivered economic benefits to Australian industry through improvements in productivity and more efficient use of resources. On the basis of these findings it is estimated that:
The largest impacts have arisen in the agriculture, mining, construction, surveying and land management, utilities and road transport and handling areas. The higher outcomes projected in 2020 assume wider coverage of augmentation services and include some speculative applications in the high case.
