Posted on 25-Jan-2006 15:18 | Tags Filed under: News



U.S. Commerce Deputy Secretary David Sampson plans to announce new next-generation Global Positioning System capabilities during a keynote at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The announcement will be made during the keynote to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's public media forum on Next-Generation GPS for Enhanced Business Productivity: "Because Time Is Money, and Location is Everything!", happening 25 January 2006.

Sampson will announce the availability of new, next-generation Global Positioning System (GPS) capabilities, including a second civilian GPS signal enabling significant improvements in accuracy and reliability.

The media forum will also feature senior executives from major U.S. corporations and associations, including Caterpillar, General Motors, IBM, John Deere, Lucent, Trimble, and the U.S. GPS Industry Council discussing how GPS and next-generation GPS technology enhance their business productivity.

There will also be speakers from Stanford University, the State of Washington, the U.S. Arctic Research Commission, and the National Space-Based Positioning, Navigation, and Timing Coordination Office.
