Australia and New Zealand intend to implement an operational satellite based augmentation system (SBAS). This will be called the Southern Positioning Augmentation Network (SouthPAN). The SouthPAN will augment standard positioning capability provided by GPS and Galileo across all of Australia and New Zealand, with expected user applications in agriculture, construction, resources, utilities and other industries; with decimetre accuracy. It will also support aviation and road transport sectors, which have requirements for high-integrity positioning data with sub-metre level accuracy. Geoscience Australia is currently in the process of procuring a SouthPAN Contractor to deliver the ground segment of the SouthPAN.
To implement SouthPAN, Geoscience Australia will procure access to a navigation transponder hosted on a satellite in Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO). The service is the first new satellite navigation service to support SouthPAN, and will be named SouthPAN GEO Payload – 01 (SGP-01).
