OS Net

Our extremely accurate and resilient network of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) base stations.

OS Net provides access to a stable, national coordinate reference system (via GNSS data). It enables Real-time Kinematic (RTK) positioning services, offered by our partners (see the links near the bottom of this page), which are ideal for surveying, construction and precision agricultural applications.

OS Net can deliver efficiencies within a variety of market sectors including agriculture, construction, surveying and asset management. It allows drivers to continue to work accurately, even in low-light conditions.

 You can save time and money and complete more jobs during the working day. The data can be available to all users using a common coordinate reference system.


OS Net can help deliver efficiencies


When used for the precise positioning of farm machinery, OS Net can be used to improve crop yields. You can plan and manage seed sowing more precisely for instance, to create less waste and reduce costs.


OS Net can be used for machine control on construction sites. This creates efficiencies by increasing the accuracy of the work, cutting fuel use and reducing operator error.


OS Net is used for land monitoring, building and setting out, among other types of surveying. Initialisation is faster and there is no need for a base station or another pair of hands.

Accurate asset management

Companies in the energy and infrastructure sector use OS Net to map their buried services precisely. This saves time in relocation and enables repairs to be carried out quickly and efficiently.
