The Top 3 High End Luxury Cars

Black Mercedes Benz S Class

Whether or not we’d like to admit it, we’ve all dreamed a dream similar to those holiday luxury car commercials at one point or another.

New Jersey Transit Reduces Waste with GPS Tracking

Chris Christie

New Jersey’s $800 Million Deficit Just two months before the end of the 2014 fiscal year, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced the state to be woefully over budget with a deficit of over $800 million. Having greatly overestimated his predictions on tax revenues, Christie was faced again in April with making drastic budget cuts to fill the gap from a nearly depleted budget. These budget changes, along with Christie’s overly optimistic predictions and recurrent “one-time measures” to address budgets gaps, prompted Wall Street ratings agency Standard & Poor to downgrade New Jersey’s credit rating. The agency also warned thatRead More

GPS Celebrates 25 Years In Space

This month marks the 25th anniversary of when the first GPS satellite was launched into space at Cape Canaveral. The exact date of that first launch was February 14, 1989, marking the first steps in building a system with capabilities that were incomprehensible at the time. The Global Positioning System is made up of a minimum of 24 satellites orbiting Earth’s atmosphere. Each satellite travels one of six orbital paths 20,000 kilometers (12.4 miles) above us. This way, at any point on the earth’s surface, enough satellites are within range in order to triangulate a location. Interestingly enough, the veryRead More

Better Positioning in the EU

The European Union is setting itself up to be fully functional with a new global navigation satellite system (GNSS) in place by the end of 2014. In November, the EU committed to spending €7 billion (roughly US$9.5 billion) to go toward projects for Europe’s satellite systems Galileo and EGNOS. Over the next twenty years, the EU is committed to spending over €90 billion for the civil GPS system. One of the major differences between Galileo and the United States’ GPS or Russia’s Glonass systems is that this satellite system is entirely funded and provided by civil endeavors, and is notRead More

Delta PDR for GPS III Deemed A Success by Lockheed Martin

Delta Preliminary Design Review (dPDR) was successfully completed for the next group of GPS III satellites, according to Lockheed Martin. The GPS satellites are part of the US Air Force’s GPS III program to replace aging satellites and help those who rely on the GPS system more effectively.   The GPS III satellites feature eight times the anti-jamming signal power and are three times more accurate than our current system. The design life of the satellites is also improved, and a new civil signal will be added which works alongside international GNSS.   Lockheed Martin was awarded the contract toRead More
