  1. GPS Navigation Systems and Data Problems By Lance Winslow
    We have a serious problem brewing with GPS navigation systems for automobiles and even motorcycles. There are however problems with this devise as a high tech toy are more serious than you might think. Ask anyone in a metro area who has bought a new car with one of those cool GPS upgrades for their SUV or new sports car. We have had our customers complain (customers of the carwash business, which is my profession). Oh they love the gadget, but they are under whelmed by the lack of data and str…


  2. Global Positioning Technology Description By Jeremy Maddock
    The worldwide Global Positioning System (GPS) network was designed by the US Department of Defense, as a way to track one’s exact location anywhere in the world.The GPS network consists of 24 navigation satellites, which orbit the planet at a height of approximately 12,000 miles. These satellites each orbit the earth twice every 24 hours, and they are set up in such a way that they can send signals to any location on the planet, whether it be land or sea, and no matter how remote.The 24 GPS sa…


  3. Anti Jam GPS By Lance Winslow
    If we go to war with China the first thing they will do is knock out as many of our satellites as possible. Many secret SPY satellites in the Military will be safe now up there and there equipment in their UAVs, ground vehicles and command and control centers because they have special Anti-Jamming GPS systems with bleeding edge top of the line and state of the art counter measure technologies. You are probably thinking to yourself who thinks of this stuff anyways? Well you know men and there t…

  5. Do You Really Need GPS? By John T Jones, Ph.D.
    Throughout all time the big question has been and still is: Where in the heck am I?Adam said, “Where are you going, Eve?”Eve shook her blond hair and said, “Darned if I know, Adam. I’m just bored with this place.”“Well, stay here then if you don’t know where you are going. You might get lost.”Adam set on a rock and waited for her answer.Eve said, “I won’t get lost, Adam. Besides, I’m not a man. If I do get lost, I’ll ask for directions.”Adam said, “You must have some idea where you want to go,…


  6. Free GPS Software By Anne King
    I took a look at some of the online offers for free GPS software and found, like many "free" offers there were often limits and provisos involved. Often the freeware is a scaled--down version of purchasable products. Sometimes the free product has restricted functionality with features disabled, other products are trial--based and are disabled after a certain time (hours or days or use).An example of limited free GPS software can be found at GPS Utility. The downloadable freeware is limited 10…


  7. How Location Based Services Are Mis-used? By William Alexander
    The Global Positions System (GPS) satellites are free for anyone to use. However, to use it, a GPS receiver is required which is not free. In recent years these GPS receivers have become very small and embedded in mobile phones. This has given rise to many location based services. Though there are many LBS applications that are very useful, there are a few applications that are misused.One of the location-based services as mentioned at http://www.m-indya.com is Child Tracking. In a study carri…


  8. Practical Uses for GPS Technology By Jeremy Maddock
    Since the US Department of Defense established the worldwide Global Positioning System (GPS) network, it has been put to a very wide variety of uses by governments, corporations, organizations, and individuals alike.It has been put to good use for many years in its original, and most obvious, purpose of coordinating military operations. In fact, if it weren’t for GPS, many modern military operations and practices would simply not be possible. It is also frequently used in search-and-rescue mis…


  9. 12 Practical Uses of GPS for Everyday People By Simon Wyryzowski
    GPS or Global Positioning Systems is a term that most commonly conjures up images of vehicle navigation systems, space-age satellite technology, and interactive maps for outdoors-types and sportsmen.

  15. Basic Global Positioning System (GPS) Overview By Ken Dennis
    The Global Positioning System, or GPS is a constellation of twenty four (24) active satellites and three (3) additional backup satellites. The GPS system was developed and implemented by the United States Air Force (USAF) for operational reasons, and has since become world wide phenomenon, used by hikers, outdoors men, and a vast array of commercial uses.GPS works on the principals of Triangulation. Satellites send signals down to the earth, which are triangulated by the GPS receiver unit givi…


  16. No GPS for Lindbergh By Sean North
    Although flying from New York to Paris is no big deal today, Charles Lindbergh flew his 3,600 mile, 33 1/2 hour flight in 1927 without a telegraph, radio or Global Positioning System (GPS). In his plane, The Spirit of St. Louis, Lindbergh packed a few sandwiches, a couple canteens of water, 451 gallons of gas and a few maps. Several men had attempted to fly the same distance as Lindbergh, but failed only weeks before he made his record-setting flight. Lindbergh made a seemingly impossible j…

  18. Advanced GPS Devices: Hello? I Am There Soon! By Oznur Ozkurt
    Development of communication technologies allowed people to access to others as they are mobile without losing their contact with their social milieu. And last minute meetings, daily changed plans and cancelled appointments became a part of our lives. Most of the time people owning a mobile phone have to explain the reason why they are not accessible. So communication is handled on individual basis, location restrictions gained minor importance. It means that a person does not have to lose con…


  19. Micro Satellites Orbiting and Tethered Together By Lance Winslow
    New technologies in micro satellites are moving very fast as processors, sensors and systems get more powerful and much smaller. I propose to have these systems and micro satellites to be in a solar system type configuration as they fly, spinning around each other with each small micro satellite literally connected to another and spinning around a center satellite module connected to a few of the orbiting micro satellites.The Lines holding them together will also be an entergy tail, that is to…


  20. Self Healing Minefields – Grid, GPS, Satellite Strategies By Lance Winslow
    I propose a “Manta Ray” Style self-burying landmine grid system, which uses swarm and haptic robotic re-organization theory to fill in the holes left from enemy intrusion. A “Manta Ray” mimicking robot, which vibrates can quickly bury itself.The virtual grid in which the land mines occupy will allow for patterns, which are algorithm controlled by encrypted satellite command relay. The shape of the land mines will be a small lobster like body with large circular or octagonal mesh wired componen…
