The Marine Department of Malaysia’s Ministry of Transportation has chosen Spain’s GMV and Astronautic Technology Sdn. Bhd. (ATSB) to establish the country’s coastal differential (DGPS) network.

This contract is partly a result of GMV’s close relationship with ATSB, a Malaysian company, forged more than three years ago in a business cooperation forum organized by the Spanish Overseas Trade Institute in Malaysia, according to the companies. The network established by GMV and ATSB will include four transmitting stations, two remote monitoring centers, and a control center. Along with coordinating the installation of the systems, GMV also will set up the necessary communications software, reference stations and integrity monitors at each site and track the specific remote-monitoring and control-center software.

“The system we have developed for this project provides dynamic support and flexibility for markets in the maritime sector,” said Luis Mayo, GMV CEO. The project validates Madrid-based GMV’s international expansion and strengthens its position in Malaysia, where it now boasts a portfolio of signature clients, the company said.
