Hexagon Enters Into Exclusive Partnership with Locata Corporation for a Completely New Positioning Technology
Hexagon has entered into an exclusive industry partnership with Locata Corporation Pty Ltd to integrate the revolutionary Locata positioning technology with Hexagon’s positioning receivers. This collaboration will leverage each company’s expertise to create the world’s first combined GPS-Locata positioning receiver. For the first time customers will have access to a tightly integrated solution providing high-precision positioning without satellites.
“Accurate positioning is a critical part of innumerable modern applications and Hexagon is undeniably a leader in supplying these GPS-style positioning and measurement technologies through our Leica Geosystems and NovAtel brands.” said Ola Rollén, Hexagon’s President and CEO. “However, as new applications for machine automation and robotics increasingly move into environments like mining and indoor warehousing – where satellite signals are blocked, unreliable or unavailable – it has become very clear there is a need for a ground-based back-up to GPS.”

Locata Passes Critical Design Review Milestone for U.S. Air Force Ground-Based Positioning System
Locata Prototypes a System for Centimeter-Accurate Positioning Over Large Areas When GPS Is Completely Denied
IRVINE, CA and CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA–(Marketwire – Sep 8, 2011) - Locata Corporation today announced it has successfully completed the Critical Design Review (CDR) contract phase for a Locata network which will enable the USAF to deploy a new ground-based, centimeter-accurate “truth-reference level” positioning system for use in GPS-denied environments. The USAF 746th Test Squadron (746TS) awarded Locata a multi-year contract for this project in July 2010, and the CDR was the last milestone to be met before the USAF committed to a technology demonstration in the USA. Locata’s Non-GPS Based Positioning System (NGBPS) — sold commercially as a LocataNet — will provide accurate positioning when GPS is jammed over 2,500 sq. miles (6,500 sq. kilometers) of the White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) in New Mexico.

Yesterday, I was using the National Geodetic Survey’s (NGS) Online Positioning User Service (OPUS), where there was a bright green notice at the top of the OPUS page that said, “OPUS will feature a new look-and-feel on or about 03/01/2011″.
In researching this impending change to the look of OPUS, I found the following notice on the NGS Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS) newsletter, which says the change is planned for this Thursday, February 24th.
Regardless of which date is correct for this change (or another altogether), I figured I’d give you a heads up.
ON THURSDAY FEBRUARY 24 OPUS WILL HAVE A NEW LOOK
On Thursday OPUS webpages will have a new look, consistent with CORS and NGS web standards.
What’s new? Read the rest of this entry →
