New Version of BKG NTRIP Client (BNC, v2.0, OS) is Available

A new version of the ‘BKG NTRIP Client’ (BNC, v2.0, OS) is available from It is worthwhile to point out that BNC now supports fully kinematic real-time Precise Point Positioning (PPP) with state-of-the-art accuracy using GPS and GLONASS observations.

Appropriate GPS and GLONASS clock estimates sampled at 5 seconds are provided by BKG & TUP in the framework of RTIGS and EUREF-IP. They come from a truly combined real-time GNSS analysis using GPS-Solutions’ RTNet software. See for further real-time products contributing to IGS and EUREF and coming from Geo++ and GSOC/DLR.

The clock/orbit stream format in use follows a draft of the ‘State Space Representation’ Working Group in RTCM SC104. Please note that proposed RTCMv3 messages are of premature nature and not yet supported by commercial products.
