The U.S. Air Force is moving forward with a plan to quickly begin buying a new set of GPS III satellites that can survive in a contested environment. The Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center issued a request for proposals on Feb. 13 to kick off the next phase of a competition for 22 GPS satellites to ...
Positioning and timing have been the foundation blocks for navigation since man first took to the oceans. Since the development of the Global Navigation satellite System (GNSS) in the late 1970s, position, navigation and timing (PNT) based on satellite input has been vital to many critical systems on board ...
Global Positioning System, or GPS, tech is able to locate people within 15 to 30 feet of virtually any outdoor location on the planet. Indoors ... That's because GPS technology works best when the device has a clear line of sight to the sky and, therefore, the GPS satellites used for establishing position.
The current GPS network, operated by Air Force Space Command, provides positioning services to billions of people around the world in addition to serving the U.S. armed forces. Other than the Roscosmos GLONASS network, the Air Force's GPS 2 constellation is the only satellite navigation network with ...
In a world where app-enabled smartphones have seemingly limitless capabilities, one must ask whether the once-innovative GPS device is still relevant today. Well, the answer is yes. You see GPS manufacturers have years of experience and millions of real-world test miles under their belt, so the resulting ...
In this case, it uses the position solution provided by all other clean signals (L1, L2, L5, and so on, from all GNSS constellations -- GPS, GLONASS, galileo, Beidou, and mroe) to identify the spoofer signal and use the real satellite measurement. If all GNSS signals are spoofed or jammed, then the system ...
While in orbit, the DSAC mission will use the navigation signals from U.S. GPS coupled with precise knowledge of GPS satellite orbits and clocks to confirm DSAC's performance. The demonstration should confirm that DSAC can maintain time accuracy to better than two nanoseconds (.000000002 seconds) ...

From cell phones to cars and even social media, most folks in this day and age are familiar with the Geographical Positioning System, or GPS. Little known ... She was just one of four Black Americans employed at the Naval base when she first started in 1956, her calculations eventually leading to satellites.
West was part of the team that developed the Global Positioning System in the 1950s and 1960s. ... "She rose through the ranks, worked on the satellite geodesy (science that measures the size and shape of Earth) and contributed to the accuracy of GPS and the measurement of satellite data," he wrote.
That is a significant improvement relative to current positioning systems. Using GPS, for example, only allows us to position objects that are in and around the earth. Signals rapidly become weaker as objects move away from GPS satellites. But with an X-ray navigation system, using pulsars as reference ...

Our global positioning satellites tell planes where they are, provide targeting info for smart weapons, and support communication and navigation systems. ... will run through February 16, the Air Force will black out GPS, forcing aircrews to execute strike missions without their familiar satellite-based guide.
The basic idea is similar to what is done with the Global Positioning System (GPS) or other global satellite navigation systems. When you use GPS to find your way to Starbucks, you are depending on transmissions from an array of satellites whose positions are precisely known. The timing of the signals you ...

A total of seven navigation satellites including three geostationary ones will be launched and operated for the construction of the KPS.
This level of precision is similar to that of atomic clocks onboard the GPS satellites. These clocks provide a time-stamp with each signal sent from space, allowing a GPS receiver on Earth to find its location by comparing the arrival times of multiple satellite signals. With detailed knowledge of several pulsar ...
(CBS) -- For most people, GPS is just about getting driving directions, but it is much more than that.
