Independent Location Scalar (ILS) platform enables enumeration of precise location using custom built-in sensors without dependence on ground stations, digital equipment, or satellites for Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) data input. This platform augments Location Based Services (LBS) in extreme conditions where satellite coverage is non-existent, under disruption, jammed, spoofed or under any duress, to yield a precise location.

Additional uses of this technology enable passive data exchanges over covert side channels thus, reducing the risk of being hacked by Near Field Communication (NFC) devices or radio interception devices. Intqlabs research teams have created specialised sensors that obtain location data from sources that are not prone to signal outage, disruption, jamming but are, as any radio reciever, susceptible to spoofing, interference and noise. To ensure sane, secure and clean radio transmission, an interface may be developed to beam data within specific boundaries, packets or within hashed checksums. It is however, near impossible to remove noise, interference, cross contamination of signal data or disruption due to the inability to control the surroundings and various interfering sources.

To ensure that ILS continues to operate in strenuous environments, the research teams have created specific algorithms, processes and checksums to ensure that location can be enumerated despite noise, interference, jamming, spoofing or duress. This platform delivers exact location coordinates with a delay of upto 500 nano seconds (when in motion) and can be embedded alongside any battery powered device. The delay may increase upto 2,000 >nano seconds when the device is stationary.

The ubiquitous nature of ILS allows deployment anywhere in the world in any device without the need for GPS satellite coverage.

ILS Components


Jamming proof transmission systems that continue to provide GNSS data without being affected by radio jamming, outage or disruption in the GPS band(s) such as GPS L1 (1575.42 MHz), L2 (1227.6 MHz), L5 (1176.45 MHz), GLONASS, GALILEO, Aviation Radio Navigation Service (ARNS), Radio Navigation Satellite Service (RNSS). These systems cover the full spectrum of lower and upper L-Band from bandwidths of 10 to 16 MHz in predefined steps. Transmission systems also use non-standard or overlapping bands since they are able to transmit data embedded within other radio transmissions. Standard or non-standard transmission streams are not prone to jamming, outage or disruption even if the streams may be open or license frequencies such as WiFi, GSM or any other protocol, service or mode.


Utilising custom sensors, the receivers obtain data and are able to remove noise from the incoming signals. These sensors use Digital Signal Processing (DSP) due to the high level of noise along with specialised antennas and receiving systems to ensure proper implementation of proprietary noise removal algorithms. These sensors, antennas and algorithms are a part of the patent application 202111049994. These algorithms ensure that spoofing and signal disruptions are identified and removed to ensure a high throughput of dependable data.


To further ensure that disruption, spoofing and jamming are at a minimum the transmitter and receiver operate in "passive" mode. This mode allows the receiver to obtain custom signal data while being undetectable by a radio monitoring or radar systems to ensure that the GPS transmissions are safe, secure and purely passive. Passivity of signal transmission is maintained across any radio band without being detected by a hacker, monitoring stations or interference/jamming unit.

The pure passivity feature enables the following applications:

- Secure exchanges such as secure GSM calls, messaging, satellite communications,

- Ability to transmit any form of data without fear of interception, decoding, decryption or injection,

- Ability to beam data at speed of sound to all receiver units in Line of Sight (LOS), and

- Short range communication (bluetooth, infrared, keyfobs, etc) cannot be decrypted since they cannot be detected, decoded or monitored.

The above features ensures that ILS is a unique and a hacking-proof technology that can be embedded in any device such as automobiles, airplanes, ships and critical vehicles as a backup for times of GPS outages.
