i-GPS Funding Denied

FCW reports that the House of Representatives denied a $81 million Defense Department request to create a location system based around the Iridium satellite constellation and GPS. The idea its that it would provide centimeter accuracy with low susceptability to jamming. The Iridium constellation was designed as a global communications constellation, but had some trouble staying funded.

The president was not pleased by the cuts while Air Force officials fear that moving forward on the project may delay the launch of the next round of GPS satellites, GPS III.
