HEPOS - Hellenic Positioning System : Global navigation satellite system infrastructure network for Greece
Trimble has been selected to supply VRS network hardware and software to establish a nationwide Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) infrastructure network for the country of Greece. Trimble will also provide complete network set up, deployment, and operation during the initial start-up period. The Trimble VRS network will provide a fixed geospatial infrastructure for surveying, engineering and geographic information system professionals that enables high accuracy real-time kinematic positioning. Known as HEPOS (Hellenic Positioning System), the network will consist of a hundred Trimble NetRS GPS Receivers and as many Trimble Zephyr Geodetic Antennas, as well as Trimble GPSNet and RTKNet software to achieve full Trimble VRS functionality. Covering approximately 50,965 square miles of mainland and islands, the HEPOS network is expected to be one of the largest GNSS networks in the world. Designed to cover the needs of the Greek National Cadastre far into the future, the HEPOS network will provide accurate and reliable centimeter-level surveying measurements to be taken faster and more cost-effectively throughout Greece.
