Welcome to the Real Time Working Group's Home Page

The IGS Real Time Working Group (RTWG) has designed and developed a prototype IGS Real-time Tracking Network. The network is designed according to the architecture agreed to following the "Towards Real-time" workshop held in Ottawa in 2002. The prototype network has grown to over 50 active stations and currently the emphasis is on initiating a Real-time Pilot Project which is expected to begin in the October 2007 time frame.
