NextNav, LLC is launching the nation’s first dedicated terrestrial indoor positioning system designed from the ground up to cover an entire metro area. Based on Metropolitan Beacon System technology, with no building-specific infrastructure, NextNav’s network is designed to provide high-accuracy, high-availability 3D location for both critical public safety services like E911 and a full range of commercial services.
In rigorous industry testing, MBS technology has demonstrated not only outstanding horizontal accuracy, but also sub-3m vertical accuracy. This is particularly important in the larger multi-story structures, both commercial and residential, common in urban areas. The reliance on a wide-area architecture and corresponding absence of any building-specific infrastructure ensures that this capability is available everywhere within NextNav’s coverage footprint.
As depicted in the diagrams below, MBS technology was developed by NextNav to ease integration with GPS technology platforms, both on mobile devices and in core network facilities such as TCS’s Xypoint® platform.
