Today, the GPS system has become an integral part of millions of people all across the world. It has made the lives of millions of people simple and thus has been instrumental in finding out the right directions for people who were lost while travelling. For the shipping companies, it has proved out to be a boon as it helps in finding out the right and shortest routes for the drivers moving on huge trucks and buses. The future of GPS technology has huge amount of surprises for its users all across the world. As per reports, the United States is preparing 5.5 billions of dollars project to upgrade the current GPS system. This will certainly add wings to the current system thus making it stronger and impeccable. Well, let’s talk about GPS technology in the company future in the following paragraphs:
The future of GPS technology has loads of surprises
With such a huge investment plan of the United States, the future of GPS technology seems to be very much lucrative. The research team at US has successfully tested the satellite for GPS III and with several more advance level interference tests by next May of 2014, it would become the first ever launch-able GPS based satellite. So what would be the potentials, which you are going to see with the successful implementation of this massive project? This GPS III satellite would be able to handle three different types of civilian signals, which would be the blend of L1C, L2C, and the L5. The L1 C/A signal would be soon become operational for the four different civilian signals.
Benefits you enjoy in the future from GPS technology
The benefits you reap from the above said signals would be incredible. Owing to the said potentials, the satellite would be able to handle high bandwidth (M-code) signals, which would be beneficial the most for the defense forces. The GPS III satellites would also be able to showcase robust departure apart from the standard wide angle or the whole Earth antenna for things like the broad coverage. The future GPS system would certainly have a good difference in vehicle navigation systems especially in the cars. You would see the cars being governed by the GPS technology maneuvering itself to your desired destination that too automatically. This will reduce the number of accidents substantially as the chances of committing human errors would come down. The cars in the future would be competent to decide which road to take and thus would bring you over your desired destination with high level of efficiency.
On the other hand, the military would be using the same technology in their weapons, which will help in getting additional edge for targeting their enemy. A couple of aircrafts would be employed to target the enemy while the others would be simply used like a spy planes. The latter ones would be smaller size, which will be consistently monitoring and spying the enemy. The missiles would also become smarter with the future GPS technology and would be able to target more precisely as compared to the present day missiles.
The GPS technology has helped man a lot in many ways. It has simply surpassed the expectations of mankind. This technology has still good amount of space to grow and prosper and as we progress in the next few years, you are certainly going to see its usage in different ways.
