Satellite positioning and navigation
Satellites have a critical role in location, navigation and tracking applications. The reliable performance of portable, often hand-held, battery powered, GPS devices that use satellite data is absolutely vital for navigation and rescue operations at sea.
Exact knowledge of the position of a vehicle or foot soldier is also vital in battlefield or anti-terror operations. GPS systems form an integral part of soldier modernisation programmes. Tracking assets such as trucks or containers is a determining success in today’s supply chain.
