RIM will be funding $337,500 of a $1.3 million University of Calgary project that will study ways to improve satellite signals inside buildings.

We know RIM is very keen on LBS technologies and there are some great implications for seeing GPS fully-functional indoors and where the signal is normally very weak. The idea is that many LBS technologies are greatly improved by more users sending in data and coordinates. If these users aren’t impeded by their surroundings, we’ll see more users on the network much faster, and therefore better and more useful apps.
