New US GPS Plan to Be Unveiled Wednesday

EE Times reports that tomorrow is the big day for a big announcement about the future of GPS, the United States satellite navigation system. The preview notes that “The Commerce Department said Deputy Secretary David Sampson will unveil the new system at a next-generation GPS forum hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.”

The updated GPS will add another civilian channel that will offer “significant improvements in accuracy and reliability,” according to Commerce. This seems to be all about commercial use since representatives from General Motors, IBM, Lucent Technologies and Trimble Navigation are expected at the forum, along with the GPS Industry Council state officials and university researchers.

I was surprised to find just one article noting this announcement but did find this press release from the Department of Commerce assuring the story’s authenticity.
