The Project «Creation of the Ground based Infrastructure of High-accuracy Satellite Navigation System»

The purpose of the Project

Laying the groundwork for guaranteed reception of qualitative coordinate-time and navigation services by users of information of global navigation satellite systems (hereinafter - GNSS) in the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

The JSC «NC «Kazakhstan Gharysh Sapary» is aimed at creating an integrated navigation field throughout the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

 According to the Decree of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan №721 dated 31.05.2012 the JSC «NC «KGS»  is defined as a National operator of the High accuracy satellite navigation system to accomplish the tasks of providing satellite navigation services throughout the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Implementation of the Project «Creation of Ground based infrastructure of the High-accuracy satellite navigation system of the Republic of Kazakhstan» will allow to perform the following tasks:

-   creation of ground based  infrastructure and distribution for consumers of differential updating information, the use of which will provide users of system with enhancing the accuracy of coordinate definitions to the required level;

·   monitoring of satellite radio navigation systems in order to timely warning users of operational disorder;

-  certification, testing, verification, calibration of satellite navigation equipment, as well as attestation of measurement techniques;

-   creation of  a pilot production of navigation equipment for the development of navigation systems and ensuring their competitiveness in the world market of navigation services.

 Implementation period 2008 – 2015 years

The project is being implemented by the High-accuracy  Satellite Navigation System Center of the JSC «NC «KGS»  (the team of HSNS RK Project)

Laboratory to asses compliance of satellite navigation hardware

A conformity assessment laboratory was created. The technical capabilities of the laboratory equipment allow to verify the navigation and frequency-time characteristics of navigation equipment. Accreditation of the laboratory is planned for the 2nd quarter of 2015.





Мobile differential station

A mobile differential station, the equipment of which is installed on a mobile platform (vehicle), functions for the coordinate-time and navigation support of consumers in regions not covered by the zone of operation of the differential stations of the HSNS RK.


The monitoring system for spatially extended objects (MSSEO)

The activities on the creation of a monitoring system for spatially extended objects are being completed. At present, the JSC «NC «KGS»  carries out work on monitoring the spatial position, elastic and inelastic deformations, as well as relative displacement of the elements of the automobile bridge across the railway on the Alash highway in Astana.


MSSEO is designed for automated monitoring of deformations and displacements::

•      hydraulic structures (dams, dikes);

•      bridges, road overpasses;

•      high-rise buildings and structures;

•      oil platforms and equipment;

•      when developing mining deposits.


The system provides the fulfillment of the main tasks:

•    Monitoring object stability by positional measurements;

•    synchronous with positional measurements, registration of wind and temperature loads, as well as traffic intensity for revealing the correlation of design reactions to external impacts;

•    obtaining in real time information about critical parameters of the object and its elements;

•    storage of information on the behavior and condition of this bridge structure..



Pilot production of navigation equipment

The activities on the creation of a pilot production of navigation equipment  are in progress. The start of series production is scheduled for the 2nd half of 2015.


 Types of output products:

•        DS – base station of GLONASS/GPS

•        Rovers –navigation equipment of the consumer (NAP) of high accuracy of the geodetic class
