BeiDou Milestones Include Accuracy to Within 1 to 2 Meters

China's domestically produced satellite navigation system BeiDou has made significant progress in terms of its accuracy, according to reports out of China earlier this month. At a recent press conference, BeiDou engineers claimed that a new accurate positioning chip can now help users arrive at their destinations with an error margin of just one to two meters.

New Research Says Turbulence Not to Blame for GNSS Outages During Northern Lights

Last week, researchers at the University of Bath in England announced findings indicating for the first time that turbulence does not take place within the Northern Lights and instead that unknown mechanisms are responsible for the outages of GNSS. This research concludes that new technology can be developed to overcome these outages from the Northern Lights, also known as aurora borealis.

Location Privacy Poised to Take a Hit

The U.S. Congress is prepared to deliver the coup de grace to a new rule aimed at protecting the personal information — including the geolocation — of broadband internet users. The move, one of a number aimed at eliminating Obama-era regulations, would slice through months of debate, and federal regulators' own backpedaling, to kill the pro-privacy rule in a way that makes resurrecting it extremely difficult.
