Locata: ACT Emerging Exporter of the Year

Saturday, 1 December 2012

On 26 September 2012, Locata was awarded the prestigious 2012 Emerging Exporter of the Year by the Chief Minister of the Australian Capital Territory, Ms Katy Gallagher at a function held at the Hyatt Hotel in Canberra.

Locata CEO, Nunzio Gambale said, “Locata is very proud to be acknowledged by the ACT government as an emerging Australian exporter of high technology.  Locata’s unique technology addresses a growing global market need for high accuracy positioning both indoors and outdoors.  With our ultra-reliable, terrestrial positioning system, which we call “Your Own GPS”, positioning will become ubiquitous, delivering new professional and consumer applications that are beyond the reach of satellite-based systems.

We anticipate that most of our networks and receivers will be exported to overseas customers via our global technology integrators, such a Leica Geosystems, which will contribute significantly to the creation of local jobs in engineering, IT and manufacturing.  All of our employees are delighted that their efforts have been recognised by the ACT government.”
