[Updated March 27] The first of two teleconferences hosted by the GPS Wing underlined the U.S. Air Force's desire to gain greater participation by manufacturers of user equipment in sorting out the options for mitigating the effects of a signal anomaly on the GPS satellite known as SVN49.
The March 26 teleconference, held on the same day as publication of a notice in the Federal Register inviting public comment on nine possible options for dealing with the anomaly, drew only a handful of participants. But the U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA), which issued the invitation, and the GPS Wing, which has the lead in implementing an eventual decision, hope to see further industry participation in written comments and a second teleconference planned for April 30.

With a given GPS receiver you get a certain positioning accuracy. So, the first question you may ask is: can I do anything to improve it?
The answer most often is: yes, go and buy a better receiver! Most ranging errors are determined by physics and you can do little to improve the situation.
Inside GNSS • May 2010
Quietly but surely, positioning, navigation and timing are being taken for granted.
The location information that GPS gives us is now at the heart of our transportation capabilities, distribution industries, just-in-time manufacturing, emergency service operations, not to mention mining, road-building, and farming.
