The Latest Technology in DGNSS Broadcast Management
Trimble Coastal Center is the first Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) software package designed specifically for the continuous monitoring and control of a collection of DGNSS broadcast sites for marine and inland navigation. It is an integral part of the Trimble DGNSS Navigation Infrastructure solutions offering which seamlessly integrates with Trimble Charisma software to enable cost effective delivery of high available/integrity navigation services. The newest addition includes the Trimble Coastal Center On-Site which allows for full control of beacon site management including database synchronization in the case of poor or limited communication links.
Trimble Coastal Center On-Site
Trimble Coastal Center On-Site is an application designed to help control and configure beacon stations, where the communication between the control station and the beacon is non-permanent. It bridges the outages in communication between the beacon site and the control station and allows for synchronization of beacon settings as well as provides performance information of the beacon. Trimble Coastal Center On-Site is available as an add-on to Trimble Coastal Center. It communicates in regular intervals with the Control Station.
Trimble Beacon Software provides a configurable architecture for deploying DGNSS navigation infrastructure to deliver high availability broadcast services for maritime harbor and harbor approach or inland navigation applications. The below diagram illustrates the advanced architecture and the variety of reference station (RS) and integrity monitor (IM) configurations it supports.
