Beacon.net supports standard output data types for all possible transmission links including radio beacon stations, AIS base stations, mobile Internet, AMDS, etc. Differential GNSS corrections and integrity information can be broadcast through different transmission protocols and messages types, such as RTCM #1/9, 3 and AIS #17.
The Alberding Ntrip Caster software is an integral part of the Beacon.net solution. Correction data can be transmitted via the Internet providing an additional independent data link for higher reliability. Ntrip also enables service providers to disseminate higher bandwidth centimetre accuracy RTK or network RTK corrections required for harbour approach and certain inland navigation applications.
