The UNAVCO Facility acts as an information clearing house for the broader UNAVCO community with respect to permanent station installation, equipment, maintenance, and support issues. UNAVCO provides field engineer, budget, equipment purchase, design and development, infrastructure (communications and power), data retrieval, and archiving support. We install and operate GPS networks around the world in support of NSF and NASA initiatives, including direct support to stations that are a part of the International GPS Service for Geodynamics (IGS) network.
