Formed in 1989, Veripos is a market leader in the provision of precise GPS and Glonass augmentation services worldwide. The company provides satellite data broadcast and support services for a wide variety of client requirements, principally in the marine industry. The range of products and services offered by Veripos are designed to enhance the accuracy, reliability and integrity of precise navigation and positioning.
Veripos has built a reputation as one of the leading providers of high-accuracy GNSS positioning services to the marine and oil and gas industries over many years. To achieve this the company has built a worldwide network of over 80 reference stations, fully independent and redundant hardware, multiple control centres, and, importantly, a team of dedicated customer support staff that is available 24/7.
GNSS positioning systems are reliant on a number of complicated component parts. It is therefore critical that the augmentation systems are designed and maintained with redundancy and control to ensure that any disruption in the global network does not affect the service to which customers are subscribing to. For that reason, Veripos has designed a network with redundant delivery satellites, communication networks, control centres, user hardware and over 80 GNSS reference stations. Each network control centre supplies data for at least two independent satellite beams in each region of the world.
When our customers install a GNSS positioning system there are many things that they require from Veripos, but customer support is key. Veripos' business is 24/7, because you need the support of an expert regardless of the time of day. To achieve this constant service, the company maintains a comprehensive support system that ensures customers can always reach an expert engineer.
In days past, mariners would be pleased to know their position on the earth to within a few miles, then more recently a few metres. Today Veripos delivers a position fix of less than 10cm horizontally, anywhere in the world. This level of accuracy is opening up a number of new applications and supporting our customers as they work in ever more extreme and challenging environments. Oil companies, DP vessel owners, seismic acquisition companies, and the world's leading survey companies rely on the proven accuracy of Veripos systems.
Alongside our world class customer support, we also offer training to ensure that Veripos users have a good working knowledge of the principles and factors affecting GNSS positioning systems. Veripos provides the expertise so customers can confidently use the systems and get maximum value from their Veripos systems. Training is designed for different users and their requirements. For example, a seismic navigator has different requirements from a DP operator, and Veripos addresses each individual business separately.
Veripos engineers are tremendously experienced in marine engineering, and can advise upon and install the best equipment in the correct way. With teams of engineers around the world and large support bases of experts, Veripos ensures that its customers have what they need when they need it. An in-house design team coupled with decades of positioning experience means the customer ends up with the best equipment for the job.
