RAPID prototyping, COMMUNICATION & technology, GLOBAL Positioning System, ARTIFICIAL satellites in navigation, and DETECTORS
The article describes a system under development for collaborative navigation in transitional environments, in which global positioning system (GPS) alone is insufficient for continuous and accurate navigation. It relates that the development of this system uses multiple detectors and communication technologies. It states that this prototype system involves a land-based deployment vehicle and human operator to examine the viability and performance attributes of such collaborative navigation.
AERONAUTICS, DRONE warfare, STUDY & teaching of navigation, SHIP pilots, and NAVAL art & science
The article discusses aspects of revolution of the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAVs) aviation's role in the society. It states the significant on the rapid development and prototyping of UAV technologies. Also emphasized are the various navigation improvements which are significant in the UAV operations.

NEW product development, RAPID prototyping, GLOBAL Positioning System, GPS receivers, and ARTIFICIAL satellites in navigation
The article focuses on the development of Global Navigation Satellite Systems. The author informs that satellite positioning and timing have relied on hardware to get the job done but receivers have evolved from bulky boxes to the chip level. Advances in etched silicon have boosted processing power. He points out that precision and adaptability in global positioning will derive from more satellites broadcasting more signals to more multifaceted receivers and software innovations.
