LocataNet Positioning Signal Interface Control Document (ICD-LOC-100A)

The LocataNet ICD defines the requirements related to the interface for Locata’s new ground-based positioning technology, which works with Locata’s transceivers, called LocataLites, to deliver centimeter-accurate positioning where GPS signals are erratic, jammed, or unavailable. It lays out the technical information that system integrators and product designers need to design standalone Locata positioning receivers, or to allow tight integration of core Locata receiver technology with GPS in various form factors.

u-blox: The Promising Marriage of Wireless and GPS Technologies

As both mobile service providers and GPS device manufacturers struggle to find new profitable services to offer their customers, the convergence of GSM and GPS technologies is starting to bear fruit. By equipping global positioning terminals with a parallel wireless back-channel, a whole new realm of application possibilities emerge that would have been impossible with either technology alone. This white paper describes some recent deployments of converged wireless/GPS applications, and gives a hint as to what exciting possibilities lie in the near future.
