Locata Comes out of Stealth Mode

Locata?

Locata's suite of new enabling technologies allows the creation of a local "GPS hotspot" - a network that is easily deployed to seamlessly fill-in areas where GPS signals are unreliable or unavailable. Locata calls this new network a "Local Constellation."

While some news crept out (APB coverage 1, 2) the big news this week:

Locata Corporation has announced the public availability of an Interface Control Document (ICD) 2011 at the Institute of Navigation (ION) GNSS Conference. The ICD defines the requirements related to the interface for Locata's new ground-based positioning technology.

It'll be available for download from the website (that just turned on recently) on Wednesday. In other news: Leica Geosystems Mining has already partnered with Locata (press release)
