Atlas® Correction Service

Satellite-Based Differential Correction Service (L-Band)

Centimeter, Decimeter and Submeter Accuracy Anywhere in the World

Atlas® is a worldwide GNSS differential correction service, offering the most innovative base station-free corrections via L-Band satellites at accuracies ranging from meter level to a few centimeters. The Arrow Gold® GNSS, with its L-Band support, provides worldwide decimeter positioning to your smartphone, tablet or notebook computer. With numerous reference stations worldwide and L-Band satellites distributing coverage from 75°N to 75°S, all of the earth’s landmass is covered. When an Arrow Gold® is subscribed to an H10 service, SafeRTK® takes over when RTK network becomes unavailable and maintains your accuracy for the rest of the outage period. With Atlas® and Arrow GNSS receivers, you can acquire 4-50 cm positioning accuracy anywhere in the world, depending on your subscription.

What to Know about Atlas® Convergence Times

How Long Does Atlas® Take to Converge?

It Depends Which Subscription You Take 

The Arrow Series® GNSS receivers use the Atlas® signal in a similar way that they use the carrier phase from an RTK network. The difference is that the correction methods used by Atlas® are global as opposed to local corrections from a base station or an RTK network. Because of this, Atlas® requires a longer convergence time than RTK to achieve the specified accuracy.

  • H10 service: Typical convergence time (to decimeter) varies between 12 to 20 minutes depending on the status of GNSS constellation.
  • H30 service: An average of 4-5 minutes is required.
  • H50 service: Reaching submeter is nearly immediate.

Once convergence is achieved and since carrier phase is used, the accuracy will remain consistent (and even improve in time) as long as the Arrow’s antenna maintains a clear, unobstructed view of the sky.

Atlas subscription service differential correction source for GNSS

How Atlas® Service Works

Learn about this L-Band differential correction source

GNSS data are collected from numerous base stations spread all over the world. Data is then processed at various control centers, and corrections are uplinked to strategically located geostationary satellites. Each satellite then broadcasts corrections for its region over specific L-Band frequencies.
Arrow Series® GNSS receivers, when subscribed to an Atlas® service, receive both GNSS signals and the L-Band corrections on the same antenna and outputs a corrected position to your mobile device (typically running a data-collection app as well as Eos Tools Pro).
