WiFi-based indoor positioning [6] have been more widely used in buildings than other local methods like RFID [7], Ultra Wideband (UWB) [8], Zigbee [9], Bluetooth [10] and Pseudolite [11].
The alternative in those places can be for example inertial measurement systems INS or pseudolite positioning systems.
Various companies have pursued ways to improve pseudolite performance, but recently Leica Geosystems Mining announced an exclusive industry partnership with Australia-based Locata Corp.
The Locata technology consists of a network of terrestrially-based and time-synchronised pseudolite transceivers, as shown in Fig.
In parallel with such efforts, Darpa (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) has been working under the GPX Pseudolite programme on the use of UAV-borne or ground-based transmitters that would create a high-powered artificial GPS environment over the battle area.
Imagine what a sophisticated middle income country could do with a few thousand French and/or Russian precision guided munitions (PGMs); a few hundred unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) (from any of 30 countries); digital videocameras; personal computers; cellular switches phones and pagers; GPS and pseudolite receivers; pocket radars; and night vision goggles; plus archived Powerscene maps combining purchased space imagery and topography, all integrated by a few hundred U.
In the last period pseudolite equipment has been widely used to a range of applications (Wang, 2002; Wang, 2007), such as aircraft landing (Sherman Lo at faa.
Based on the same pseudolite technology that Novariant has employed in precision landings of commercial aircraft and military fighter planes in zero visibility conditions, the Terralite XPS system architecture is now being deployed to support other critical applications that require continuous positioning availability.
2]R) and even battlefield pseudolite augmentation must be strongly considered in jamming scenarios.
Promising alternatives include ground-based global positioning system pseudolites, HALE UAS, and improved inertial and celestial navigation capabilities.
A pseudolites signal can be as strong as the power available to it.
