Business description: Rosum has created a positioning system that is based on high-powered, high-bandwidth synchronization codes in broadcast television signals. The advantage of this technology is that it is particularly effective indoors and in urban canyons where traditional positioning technologies are limited. The company will license and build hardware and software that enable accurate and reliable positioning. Rosum's current and potential customers include: GPS tracking companies that want to integrate urban and indoor positioning functionalities into their product offering; communications equipment manufacturers that want to locate emergency response personnel; organizations in the U.S. Government seeking to meet the challenges of homeland security; shipping and chain management companies that want to track their assets and those of their customers; cellular handset manufacturers and cellular service providers in the U.S., Asia, and Europe that require increased accuracy and reliability for their location-based service offerings.
