The Geodetic Observatory TIGO was conceived as a fundamental station for geodesy and therefore operating all relevant instruments, which contribute directly or indirectly to the very precise determination of a reference point in space, time and gravity.
Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) is an interferometric measuring technique which uses distant radiotelescopes.
Satellite Laser Ranging (SLR) determines distances to satellites with pulses of light.
Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) comprises the satellite systems GPS, Glonass and Galileo.
Atomic clocks are generating a high precise time scale for the measuring techniques VLBI and SLR.
The Superconducting Gravity Meter measures tide induced variation of gravity.
The seismometer measures seismic waves which are caused by earthquakes or explosions.
The meterological sensors record the climate parameters at the site.
The local survey in its own local geodetic network ties the different geodetic instruments togethers.
