Artist's concept of the GPS-2F satellite

On 1 August 2014, the U.S. Air Force launched the seventh of its GPS 2F series of positioning, navigation and timing satellites from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

This new GPS 2F satellites, which will be one of 31 active satellites in the constellation, provide better accuracy and resistance to jamming than the previous generation of GPS satellites, most of which are still in operation. The launch helps bolster a GPS fleet whose satellites are beginning to show their age, Air Force officials say.

China: Expansion of Beidou satellite navigation system until 2020

Satellite image of Beijing, China

China is planning to expand its homegrown Beidou navigation system by 2020 and make it accurate to within centimeters. Up until now the Chinese system has 16 satellites and it is expected to grow to 30 by 2020.

Currently the system reaches an error margin as low as 5 meters. With the improvements China hopes to be able to compete with the US GPS. The system serves the Asia-Pacific region a year now and hopes to expand coverage to other Asian countries.
