Locata Confirms Extraordinary Positioning Results Obtained by the USAF during Independent Testing at White Sands Missile Range.

Locata Delivers Superb Positioning Accuracy and Reliability to the USAF in the Complete Absence of GPS.

Canberra, Australia and Las Vegas, Nevada – December 12, 2012 – Locata Corporation confirmed today that the spectacular performance of the company’s ground-based LocataNet™ positioning system, recently reported by the USAF after independent testing at the White Sands Missile Range, was correct. The USAF tests showed that a LocataNet can be fully autonomous from GPS, yet simultaneously deliver the same or better positioning, navigation and time (PNT) to aircraft at White Sands as high-accuracy positioning derived from the entire GPS satellite constellation. This is a world-first achievement, which today led to an announcement that Locata has been awarded a “sole-source” USAF contract to install a LocataNet covering over 2,500 square miles of the White Sands Range in New Mexico.
