IBGE, as the institution responsible for the Brazilian Geodetic System, presents a proposal for the implementation of a network for continuous monitoring of the Global Positioning System satellites. This network will materialize a three-dimensional geodetic system where users will not occupy the permanent IBGE stations, as the implementation, operation, maintenance, control and data distribution will be under IBGE responsibilities. This network, which has several purposes, will be implemented by steps, with installation of the first nine stations expected to be concluded by the end of next year.
