Personnel

The GGOS Bureau of Products and Standards (BPS) is jointly operated by Deutsches Geodätisches Forschungsinstitut der Technischen Universität München (DGFI-TUM) and Lehrstuhl für Astronomische und Physikalische Geodäsie (APG) Technische Universität München.

Director: D. Angermann
Deputy Director: T. Gruber

BPS-Team:

  • Geometry, Orbits, TRF: D. Angermann, U. Hugentobler, P. Steigenberger (associated member)
  • Earth Orientation, CRF: M. Gerstl, R. Heinkelmann (as representative of IAU)
  • Gravity: T. Gruber
  • Vertical reference systems:  L. Sánchez


A close interaction with the Services of the International Association of Geodesy (IAG) is essential to accomplish the tasks of the BPS, including the evaluation of the standards and conventions currently adopted by all IAG components and other entities involved. This has been achieved by selecting representatives from the IAG Services, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) and other entities as Associate Members of the BPS:
