RESULTS COMPARABLE WITH IGS QUALITY
We conducted continuous measurements over a period of 30 days at the German Research Centre for Geosciences GFZ in Potsdam, Germany. Our TEXtant® GNSS system was connected to the same antenna as the geodetic Javad receiver of the IGS station POTS, as seen here.
The results of the measurements were exceptional. Our system delivered precise measurement data of displacement, direction, and velocity, with an accuracy comparable to that of the world standard IGS stations.
The daily results are accurate to the millimeter. Measured at the IGS station at the GFZ, Potsdam, Germany
A new type of GNSS box is being developed as part of a cooperation between Texplor, the TU Berlin and the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam. The box contains innovative hardware and software developments and enables cost-effective, autonomous and very accurate positioning.”Prof. Dr. Jens Wickert

AUTOMATIC DATA PROCESSING
The TEXtant® software performs all data corrections automatically, eliminating the need for manual processing by a specialist. Once a day, the GNSS system processes all data autonomously and delivers 3D coordinates to a secure client database, with accuracy on par with the world standard of IGS stations. This saves both time and money, making TEXtant® an efficient and cost-effective solution for precise geohazard monitoring.
NEW POSSIBILITIES FOR SCIENCE AND EARLY WARNING SYSTEMS
The TEXtant® GNSS network system provides daily results from multiple stations on different tectonic plates, enabling the development of a cross-border early warning system for disaster prediction and risk management. Its unique capability to view an entire region simultaneously is a game-changer for geohazard monitoring, minimizing risks, and potentially predicting disasters before they occur.

PLATE TECTONIC MOVEMENT AND CLIMATE CHANGE
The effects of climate change have led to an increased risk of natural hazards such as floods and landslides, which pose a threat to people, structures, dams, and landfills. The movements of the Earth’s crust and tectonic plates are known to cause earthquakes and other geological hazards. Millions of people are at risk in densely populated risk areas around the world, highlighting the urgent need for new cost-effective GNSS networks to provide reliable and effective early warning systems.
ALARM IN CASE OF UNUSUAL MOVEMENT ACTIVITIES
The TEXtant® system alerts on sudden movements and direction changes for quick early warning. The fully automated movement results can be relayed immediately to all agencies involved in order to ensure a coordinated evacuation or incident command.
ASIA MINOR TEXTANT GNSS NETWORK PROJECT
In response to the devastating earthquakes that struck Turkey and Syria in February 2023, Texplor is committed to making a significant contribution to the disaster response efforts in the Asia Minor region. To this end, we have launched the “ASIA MINOR GNSS NETWORK” project, which involves the immediate deployment of a GNSS network for all affected countries. As part of our commitment, we are donating 6-7 TEXtant® GNSS systems to build the startup network in Turkey and neighboring countries down to Egypt. Daily results will be available for experts of all neighboring countries. Our goal is to expand the project to a significant level that can make a real difference in the affected region.
