NASA will be performing maintenance on Wednesday, June 5 from 9:00am - 11:00am EDT (1400 UTC - 1600 UTC). You may experience difficulties accessing the NTRIP real-time data streams. You may experience multiple short (several minute) intermittent outages during the maintenance window. Existing connections will need to be restarted. If you experience problems outside this window, contact support-cddis@earthdata.nasa.gov.

Real-time data

The CDDIS has real-time streaming software (NTRIP, Networked Transport of RTCM via Internet Protocol) for receipt and transmission of real-time GNSS data and product streams in support of the IGS Real Time Service. The available product streams consist of GNSS orbit and clock corrections, which enable various applications such as precise point positioning (PPP).

The intention of the CDDIS NTRIP caster is to disseminate Broadcast Corrections for GNSS satellite orbits and clocks in real time in RTCMv3 format. Details about GNSS product streams are available through the caster's Source table. Information on connecting to the CDDIS Caster, streams that we carry, and client configuration is available.
