You're right that commercial GPS can be inaccurate but of what magnitude is military GPS better?
Let's just say we use logic; GPS is dependent on satellites primarily, and we can also deduce that accuracy can be improved by increasing the amount
of satellites processing information. This would hold even more true if we could also account for atmospheric variations from the respective
Or in other words, the more measurements I make, the more sure I am of what my location is, right?
The US owns a #load of these satellites, since they own the entire GPS system (which is genius btw, well played). I think it's safe to assume that the
commercial use of their satellites is limited to only a fraction of their entire fleet.
The fact is that most people's SAT NAVs are accurate 99% of the time to within a few metres, and this is simply the commercial accuracy of this
system. The problems with driverless cars also lie in having an effective 'cloud' network, as well as sensors and data/motion translation occurring on
a commercial vehicle that is more partial to atmospheric effects and conditions as well as cost limitation, than one of military integrity.
We can assume the missiles have more sophisticated 'cloud GPS' and also autonomous inertial adjustment systems, simply based on the idea that the
military have been exploring and developing this technology much sooner than any other industry.
It does make you think eh?
So, you think they made the smoothing function more liberal as to make more missiles get to their overall general area, but at the same time less
likely to hit the very local target (say 3m diameter) that they were intended for? Or have I completely misunderstood lol?
