The U.S. Air Force has awarded Lockheed Martin a $395 million contract to build the ninth and tenth GPS III satellites.

The GPS III models will deliver three times better accuracy and have much improved anti-jamming capabilities. They also have a longer operational lifespan of 15 years, 25% longer than the previous generations.

GPS III also features an upgrade to the L1 C/A signal which will continue in legacy mode to support older receivers. The new L1C GPS signal features a modulation scheme that permits interoperation with the Galileo GPS network to improve mobile GPS reception in challenging signal environments.

I was just thinking (not going to affect me as I'll be long gone) but when the earths resources do finally run out, no new GPS launches, so how will people find their way around having long since got used to not having maps to follow, not in vehicles obviously, so back to horse and cart again, who knew the Amish got it right :D :D
