Positioning systems based on observation of satellites are still effectively developed. Additionally to the increase of the precision achieved thanks to various GNSS there are many other ways to eliminate so called dead areas like use of IMU systems or pseudolite systems. Many of these redundant ways, allows to get position faster, which spreads the field of their applications. The interesting possibility to augment the positioning technology, especially in areas with permanently limited access to satellite observations, is co working with the systems based on very popular in communication networks RF transmission. In the article a result of preliminary tests with the zigbee radio transceiver for ranging in small closed areas are presented.

Keywords: ranging; ZigBee; collaborative navigation; WPAN nets.
