Economic Benefits of GNSS
ACIL Allen Consulting Report
This report on the economic benefits of GNSS technology and applications to Australia, was prepared by ACIL Allen Consulting for the Australian Government’s Space Coordination Office. The report, which was published in June 2013, provides an overview of economic and social benefits, experience, and prospects for the use of augmented GNSS in agriculture, mining, construction, utilities, surveying and land management, road transport, rail, maritime, and aviation activities.
Augmented GNSS services have delivered economic benefits to Australian industry through improvements in productivity and more efficient use of resources. On the basis of the findings of this report it is estimated that:
- By 2012 Australia’s real GDP was between A$2.3 billion and A$3.7 billion higher than it would have been without the accumulated productivity improvements arising from augmented GNSS; and
- By 2020 ACIL Allen’s projections are that real GDP could be between A$7.8 billion and A$13.7 billion higher than it would otherwise have been.
