Three GPS Satellites Moved Into New Positions for More Robust, Accurate Signals

By next June, the United States GPS constellation will attain the most optimal geometry in its nearly 33-year history. Over time, that means a more robust signal, more accuracy and more reliability in GPS-challenged environments.

Norway and Russia cooperate on navigation systems in the North

Norway will maintain their Loran C system, while Russia will modernize their Chayka system. The two are going to be synchronized so they can function as a backup for electronic navigation when the satellite navigations systems are not available.
