Space: May 4, 2002


To prevent its GPS signals (which guide bombs among other things) from being jammed, the US plans to install more powerful transmitters on the next series of GPS satellites (the GPS-2F and GPS-2R types). The Pentagon is building 26 of the new satellites, and at least 20 of them will have the new transmitters that are 10dB louder than the old ones.--Stephen V Cole
