SIRGAS Local Processing Centres, IGS RNAAC SIRGAS, Combination Centres

The Local Processing Centres perform weekly computations of a specified set of SIRGAS stations, guarantying that each station is included in three individual solutions. Their solutions are combined with the core network to provide the final SIRGAS products. At present, the SIRGAS local processing centres are:

The IGS Regional Network Associate Analysis Centre for SIRGAS (IGS RNAAC SIRGAS) usually computed the entire SIRGAS Network (from June 1996 to August 2008) in one block. After the establishment of the SIRGAS Local Processing Centres, the IGS RNAAC SIRGAS is now responsible for the weekly computation of the SIRGAS-C core network and for its combination with the SIRGAS-N national networks. The IGS RNAAC SIRGAS is operated by the

Combination Centres

The Combination Centres are responsible for combining the loosely constrained weekly solutions for the SIRGAS-N national networks with the corresponding solution for the SIRGAS-C core network. At present, they are:

The individual weekly solutions of the SIRGAS-CON sub-networks delivered by the Processing Centres and the weekly combinations carried out by the Combination Centres are available at: ... wwww  (wwww = GPS week)


Experimental Processing Centres

Experimental Processing Centres are candidates to become SIRGAS Local Processing Centres. During a specified time period, they align their processing strategies to those required by SIRGAS and demonstrate their capacity for timely and continuously delivery of weekly solutions. Once they satisfy these requirements, they are appointed as official processing centres. During the test period (at least one year), they process a set of SIRGAS-CON stations, but their solutions are not included in the computation of the final SIRGAS products.
