NextNav, LLC Key Developments

EF Johnson Technologies, Inc. and NextNav, LLC Announce Integration of Viking P25 Radio and Metropolitan Beacon System Indoor and Vertical Location

EF Johnson Technologies, Inc., and NextNav LLC, announced the integration of EFJohnson's Viking P25 radio with the indoor location capabilities of NextNav's Metropolitan Beacon System (MBS), providing the advanced, public safety grade wide-area indoor and vertical location for the public safety communities. The integrated system is available for demonstration to police, fire, and other public safety professionals. MBS provides an innovative terrestrial constellation, which brings GPS-like performance to indoor and urban environments where satellite-based positioning is either unavailable or significantly degraded. As proven in the FCC-chartered communications security, reliability, and interoperability council (CSRIC) trials, NextNav LLC demonstrated the superior performance of its MBS technology in accurately locating users in challenging indoor environments in both the horizontal and the vertical dimensions. This demonstration proves Public Safety products can be developed to enable real-time location tracking and monitoring of First Responders over the bandwidth constrained public safety network. The provision of this capability across an entire metropolitan area- in buildings, on multiple floors, and in areas where GPS positioning is severely limited- significantly enhances the overall operational effectiveness of the First Responder community. Given the widespread use of the P25 radio standard in the United States by Public Safety personnel, and the proven reliability accuracy of EFJohnson's Viking LMR P25 radios and of MBS, NextNav and EFJohnson believe the integration to be a significant step in providing the most advanced communications technologies to the front lines of the public safety community.
