The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) has announced it has awarded a six-figure contract to deep location technology provider Pointr for wayfinding technology that provides indoor location GPS for Washington Dulles International (IAD) and Ronald Reagan Washington National (DCA), the company said.

Pointr´s Deep Location technology aims to enhance the passenger experience at each airport by directing people to the correct queue and gate. Smartphones collect and process signals emitted by Bluetooth sensors installed around the airport for navigation.
