Project financed from „The National Plan for Research, Development and Innovation”

Full Title: Applications and new services for navigations and satellites localization based on WiMAX technology, acronym LOCOMAX.
Project Type: Complex Project.
S/T Area: Research Direction: “Space and Security”
Purpose: The project propose to research and develop applications focused on improvement of portable satellite navigation systems, security, information transmission from all sources together with geographic reference.
Project objectives: For that it will be researched and studied: complementary systems GNSS (GPS, EGNOS, Galileo) with WiMAX for continues signals in closed areas ( buildings, bridge, tunnels, urban agglomerations, etc.), services based on location with support for communication in WIMAX network, mobile system for navigation and communication, specific applications for security and intelligent information field (HUMINT, IMINT, SIGINT).
Other result it will be generation of system for information transmission from terrain for administration of critical actions and activities specific for police.
