First modernized GPS satellite Launched (Slashdot)

keen writes "The first GPS 2R-M satellite has launched from Cape Canaveral,
Florida on top of a Boeing Delta 2 rocket. The government is now competing with
Europe's Galileo system, and has added two additional military channels and one
civilian channel, which will increase the accuracy and performance of GPS - as
well as increase its resistance to jamming."
