GPS III software passes latest test

by GPS4US 2013-09-13 15:49


The latest news coming out of the GPS III system is incredibly encouraging.

New software for the next generation of global positioning systems passed the test of its launch and early orbit operations, Raytheon and Lockheed Martin – the companies collaborating on the project for the US Air Force – reported on Thursday. 

His was the third of five tests GPS III must pass before its launch in 2015. Raytheon is in charge of building ground control and satellite operations software, while Lockheed Martin built a production for the first six satellites.


Raytheon’s software tested well this week, meeting ““mission requirements and is on track to support the launch of the first GPS III satellite,” the company said in a statement.


Two more tests will be conducted, along with six more launch rehearsals, before launch.



GPS III will offer far stronger signals than the current GPS system. It will be tougher to jam GPS III signals.
