Satellite-Based Augmentation System

Satellite-Based Augmentation System, or SBAS refers to any system designed to enhance the performance of a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) by providing signal offset correction information.

Three SBAS are currently in operation:

North America's Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS),
Europe's European Global Navigation Overlay System (EGNOS)
Asia's Multi-transportation Satellite Augmentation System (MSAS).

Local Area Augmentation Systems
A Local area Augmentation System is used to augment Global Positioning Systems when fine, precise detail is required. They could actually solve a lot more sensor web issues than just the use in aeronautics they have today.

World Review: 3DEE
World Review: 3DEE welcome screen
3DEE is a social worlds system based on the ActiveWorlds codebase. Like all systems based on this code, it looks and feels a bit dated, although this one has its own unique wrinkles to help take care of that. Based in Amsterdam, 3DEE?s primary language is Dutch, and the universe?s eight entrance worlds are loosely based around that theme.
