WHAT IS C4GNET’S REAL-TIME NETWORK?

LSU has implemented C4GNet as a Real-Time-Network (RTN) that allows subscribers to enjoy a virtual zero-length baseline everywhere in the State of Louisiana. Rather than using radios to transmit correction data from a single reference station, C4GNet uses the entire network of 100+ CORS receivers to compute what the atmospheric corrections are necessary for where the subscribed user is actually located! Using data cellphones, the C4GNet RTN keeps track of where each mobile user is located, and as users move the system will re-calculate corrections as needed in order to maintain the benefit of a continuous, zero-length baseline.
