TIGO — A New Transportable Integrated Geodetic Observatory
To monitor global change and global geodynamics requires a real global distribution of VLBI- and SLR-stations at distances of approximately 5000 Km. At present especially in the Southern Hemisphere only a few permanent stations (VLBI: 3; SLR: 2) are available; some other large gaps are existing at the Asian Continent and in South East Asia. Due to the economic situation in these areas, the highly developed countries should feel to be obliged to give support.
