Locata Corporation (Locata) has invented a groundbreaking radio positioning system that can be considered a "local GPS". Functionally the Locata system is equivalent to a GNSS positioning constellation but is ground-based instead of satellite-based.
The Leica Jigsaw Positioning System (Jps) is the world’s first commercial product to integrate the Locata signals produced by the Locata system into a high precision GNSS+Locata positioning device. The Leica Jps leverages the strengths of both the GNSS and Locata technologies, delivering a new and previously unattainable level of positioning reliability in areas where GNSS-only positioning is unreliable.
Leica’s new white paper describes the Leica Jps components and its deployment on to machines at Newmont Boddington Gold mine.
