NovAtel CORRECT with PPP.

NovAtel CORRECT is the core positioning engine on NovAtel GNSS receivers, incorporating corrections from a variety of sources to provide the position solution suitable for a variety of applications.

NovAtel CORRECT with PPP utilizes correction data from TerraStar. GNSS satellite clock and orbit correction data from the TerraStar network is delivered directly to the NovAtel receiver where it is combined with NovAtel CORRECT algorithms to offer two levels of positioning accuracy: TerraStar-C for 5-centimeter-level positioning with instant reconvergence after short GNSS outages, and TerraStar-L with horizontal position accuracy of 50 centimeters.

The TerraStar network provides continuous satellite coverage worldwide, with 80 GNSS reference stations located around the globe. Three widely distributed Network Control Centers deliver data over seven independent satellite beams. This fully redundant system means TerraStar offers an extremely robust, reliable correction service users can rely on 24/7.
