Marc Andreessen famously coined the phrase “software is eating the world”, nearly nine years ago, in which he argued that “we are in the middle of a dramatic and broad technological and economic shift in which software companies are poised to take over large swathes of the economy.”
Humatics first introduced its KinetIQ product line at IMTS in Chicago back in September 2018. Since this past fall, our engineers and manufacturing teams have been working hard to scale up delivery for the first industrial-grade, ultra-precise 3D microlocation system to customers in port, manufacturing and logistics industries later this year.
At Humatics we love working with academic and R&D customers, and we especially love witnessing their contributions advancing the field of Ultra Wideband (UWB) radio technology. With that in mind, we're excited to announce our new SCHOLAR line of UWB radio microlocation and radar products. Our Lab and Development packages are ideal for undergraduate labs but powerful enough for grad students and professors to conduct serious research.
As an electrical engineer and professor of aerospace engineering, I have intimate knowledge of the core technologies that go into GPS: signaling, RF propagation, and spread-spectrum coding among them. Yet I still see GPS as a miracle — that something as complex as it is, with so many interacting parts, works as reliably and precisely as it does. It enables us to navigate nearly all over the earth, at high update rates, with ten-meter precision, thanks to the enormous sponsorship of the US Department of Defense.

The end of 2018 marked the 50th anniversary of Apollo 8 — the stunning mission to send astronauts around the moon in preparation for the lunar landing seven months later. An excellent documentary on PBS’s NOVA, (based in part on my book Digital Apollo) captured the risky nature of the mission, NASA's bold decision to leap several steps ahead in the space race (winning it), and the importance of the digital computer as a partner to the crew.
