Why positioning system GPS good DARPA advantages ?

When marking your location on Google Maps by “ping” everywhere, erratic GPS signal will cause significant inaccuracies. DARPA will eliminate this instability by developing a technology to be “radical” position allows detection in real time – a technology that works even in the blind spot or deliberately factors cause interference.

expects this technology will bring great benefits not only for the US military but also for everyone.Not only during the war, a new location technology will become better and more versatile GPS navigation system that we use in everyday life people. Imagine if we used a network of military service for navigation and positioning, new technologies will help us how.

As DARPA introduced in an article: ” To operate effectively in areas where GPS is inaccessible, unreliable or potentially confounding by an opponent deliberately obstructing efforts to counter the will be needed to replace a system to ensure the accuracy and time . ” It also works on the gyro calibration and self-timer / clock, which allows you to detect the position of not having to rely on a wireless signal or other resources from outside: for example, SmartWatch in the future if you know what comes in, and you move 350m northwest, it will now know exactly where you are without having to check through the Internet or satellite again.

Even more amazing, the researchers are trying to create the sensor allows inclusion “signals opportunistic” as television, radio and even the signal light, to serve the probe position. It’s called ASPN (short for All Source Positioning and Navigation), and will be extremely useful when in the jungle, including concrete tunnel or in the tropical forests – where GPS signals near as inaccessible. This will also help reduce energy consumption for navigation equipment, DARPA obviously have a lot of potential in technology, due to large-scale deployment.
