Locata Corporation and Hexagon Mining have partnered to bring Locata technology to mines. The JPS (Jigsaw Positioning System) is a radiolocation technology that replicates a highly accurate positioning network system, augmenting GNSS satellites with a ground-based positioning network. Created in partnership with Locata, JPS provides the same positioning accuracy of GNSS, but without the signal drop-out in deep pits and against... read more

Wide-Area Wireless Network Synchronization with LocataNets The United States Naval Observatory conducted several independent frequency synchronization experiments in Washington, D.C., using an alternative PNT technology in multiple network configurations. The results suggest that sub-nanosecond time transfer using this technology may be possible over wide urban areas, and that it could thus serve as a GPS augmentation or back-up solution over... read more

OxTS Creates Locata + INS System

August 7, 2015By
The Inertial+ by OxTS improves measurements from a GPS receiver.

OxTS has successfully integrated a Locata receiver with its Inertial+ to create the first Locata+INS device, according to both companies. The device is capable of achieving centimeter-level accuracy where GPS systems fail. The Inertial+ series, first developed in 2008, was designed for users who had an external GNSS receiver already, but still wanted to gain the benefits of an inertial system. The... read more
