Economic impact survey of the NPIC program

By on 23 May, 2022


Geoscience Australia is undertaking an assessment of the economic impact of the National Positioning Infrastructure Capability (NPIC) program.

The program provides free and open access to multi–Global Navigational Satellite Systems (GNSS) observations streams from the national network of Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS).

Users can connect to these data and product streams direct from GA or via a commercial positioning service provider. The CORS network has been designed to support a national positioning capability that provides better than 5 cm accurate positioning solutions in areas with access to mobile phone coverage (delivery via the internet).

ACIL Allen has been engaged by Geoscience Australia to conduct a web-based survey for stakeholders with interest in this program to assist with data gathering for the economic assessment.

The survey can be found at:

The survey takes between 15 to 20 minutes to complete. There is an additional optional component for service providers that will may take an additional 15 minutes.

It can be completed in stages, if necessary, with a facility to save responses. It will remain open until 28 June 2022 (extended from 25 May).

Questions can be directed to Alan Smart (Project Director) on 0404 822 312 or Nanumi Starke (ACIL Allen) on 0466 636 345.
