    Decawave develops ICs for real time ultra-accurate positioning and 
communication based on its Ultra Wide Band (UWB) technology platform, which 
measures distance by calculating the time it takes for the radio signal to 
travel in the air. Through the partnership, H&D Wireless has implemented 
Decawave's UWB transceiver, the industry's first single-chip solution for 
Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) applications, in its Griffin Enterprise 
Positioning Service (GEPS) cloud platform.

    "Using Decawave's state-of-the-art transceiver chip enables us to increase 
positioning accuracy down to 10 centimeters as well as faster deployment, 
making GEPS an even more versatile and competitive solution," said Par 
Bergsten, CEO and founder of H&D Wireless. "GEPS users can expect more precise 
positioning and faster deployment making RTLS available to a broader range of 
applications such as Industry 4.0 and Hospitality markets."

    "H&D Wireless' GEPS is the most mature infrastructure solution on the 
market today, and we are excited to work with H&D to accelerate the 
introduction of accurate RTLS in demanding manufacturing applications 
worldwide," said Paul Costigan, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Decawave.
