US: Locata Corporation has revealed NASA’s plans to install a Locata network (LocataNet) as the core positioning technology for safety-critical unmanned aerial systems (UAS) research at Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia.
The LocataNet will provide the vitally important high-precision non-GPS-based positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) that for UAS safety and technology concepts. “Globally significant installations like this prove Locata’s new technology is delivering unprecedented levels of performance to many important new applications. As our technology rollout begins to gain pace, the exceptional value Locata brings to next-gen mobile apps has attracted interest from players all over the world. In fact, our list of relationships is now looking like a roster of the world’s crème-de-la-crème. I honestly can’t think of a better or more prestigious name than NASA to add to our growing partner list,” said Nunzio Gambale, Locata CEO.
