FOAM builds tools to enable a crowdsourced map and decentralized location services. FOAM Location is a network of radios that offers secure location services independent of GPS. The radios are LoRa and can cover a large area with minimal power consumption. You can dig into the details on their site and especially in their whitepaper.

For FOAM, the Brooklyn Navy Yard provided a dense urban environment to test their system and will be an ongoing testing site. They have four rooftop nodes at different altitudes and spaced up to 500m apart.
