Locata Corporation Pty Ltd. Key Developments

US Air Force Institute of Technology Signs Agreement with Locata on New GPS Technology Development

Air Force Institute of Technology has signed a Co-operative Research & Development Agreement with Locata Corporation to build and demonstrate new Locata technology for use in GPS receivers. This cooperation is expected to leverage many years of proprietary Locata ground-based positioning technology development to bring completely new capabilities to satellite-based GPS receivers. The CRADA is specifically directed to evaluate Locata's patented Vray(TM) switching antenna and new correlator technologies for multipath mitigation in position receivers that run at GPS frequencies. Locata engineers are transferring to AFIT the knowledge and experience they have gained with existing commercial Vray systems. This will allow AFIT researchers and engineers to familiarize themselves with the new antenna's characteristics, and provide AFIT with an essential platform to develop GPS-specific versions of Locata's correlator and switching algorithms. AFIT will first design and build a GPS-frequency multi-element switching antenna prototype that is based on Locata Vray patents. When built, AFIT intends to use their GPS receiver and this prototype Vray to physically demonstrate the feasibility of using Locata technology to improve GPS receiver performance.
