Locata, an Australian Company that has major International Contracts is bring Manufacturing back to Australia

NUNZIO GAMBALE, Co-Founder, Chairman, and CEO has been responsible for utilising Australian Companies in their supply chain. By using Australian Companies such as 3D Printing Studios this allows Locata to receive products quicker (especially with current import delays) and cheaper than offshore suppliers. NUNZIO GAMBALE is also very enthusiastic about keeping manufacturing in Australia.

3D Printing Studios is currently working with Locata to supply their ground-based transmitters.

Locata has invented a new, completely autonomous positioning technology that creates terrestrial networks that function as a “local ground-based replica of GPS-style positioning.  

Locata is not designed to replace GPS; it is a local extension and expansion of GPS. It works with GPS but can also operate independently when GPS is not robust or completely unavailable. Instead of orbiting satellites, Locata utilizes a network of small, ground-based transmitters (LocataNet) that blanket a chosen area with strong radio-positioning signals.

As it is terrestrially based and provides powerful signals, Locata can work in any internal or external environment. There is nothing “global” about positioning in a warehouse, an open-cut mine, or in a city. It is inherently a “local” requirement. However, before Locata, the only way to provide that positioning service was via a GPS satellite system.
