I have a friend who was involved with the development, I'll see what he's willing to cough up. ;-)

Seems a new version was recently released, this sounds pretty cool.
Flying Squirrel uses a GPS receiver to track your current position as you
conduct a wireless scan. While this works well outdoors while walking or
driving, a GPS receiver cannot provide accurate position information if you
are scanning inside a building. With tracking information indoors not
available, the mapping function cannot be used, thus making indoor scanning
more labor intensive.

To address this issue, NRL has developed a small inertial navigation unit
called Caribou. This unit plugs into a laptop running Flying Squirrel and
provides location information in the absence of a GPS signal.
