SNIP is an NTRIP Caster that allows anyone, from a hobbyist with a single device to large GPS – GNSS network operator with hundreds of devices, to quickly set up and run their own caster network delivering GNSS corrections to a user community.  All versions of SNIP allow common core features and the following types of data connections to create data streams:

  • Remote connections established through TCP/IP  (as an NTRIP Client to other casters, or as a raw stream)
  • Local connections established through serial ports (eliminating the need or a separate NTRIP Server)
  • Pushed-In connections that receive data from another NTRIP caster passively (traditional NTRIP Caster streams)
  • Pushed-Out connections that actively push data into another NTRIP caster (acting as an NTRIP Server for others)

SNIP is available in several different models to suit your needs. A free evaluation download allows exploring SNIP‘s primary features.  In this mode, each time SNIP, is started, users have a limited one-hour evaluation period with all of the features in the Basic model enabled. The application can be upgraded to the Lite model at any time free of charge by completing a brief in-app registration. The Basic and Pro models are obtained by way of a simple cart checkout process.

You may use any model of SNIP for either private or commercial applications, including the free Lite model.  You may charge other parties who access your data as you see fit (or make it free). Lifetime upgrades as new releases of SNIP occur are always free to all registered users.

And unlike most other Caster vendors, SNIP has no annual or reoccurring fees. Your purchase price is your only price.  Period.  Most of our competitors have reoccurring charges that quickly become burdensome.

Add-on Licenses

Registered Users who want to increase their simultaneous stream limit without upgrading to the next license tier may elect to purchase an add-on license. These licenses will allow the user to add 1, 3, 5, or 10 streams to the maximum allowed simultaneous connections. All licenses can be used in a cumulative fashion, adding to the user’s allowed total.

  • Additional Stream License, 1-Pack       $145.00
  • Additional Stream License, 3-Pack       $395.00
  • Additional Stream License, 5-Pack       $620.00
