Technology can reduce GPS outages from Northern Lights, researchers say



London (UPI) Mar 13, 2017
Scientists studying the Northern Lights say they think their research will lead to new technology to reduce outages from satellite navigation systems. Researchers at the University of Bath in England found for the first time that turbulence does not take place within the Northern Lights and instead that unknown mechanisms are responsible for the outages of Global Navigation Satellite Systems. The researchers concluded new technology can be developed to overcome these outages from the Northern L ... read more
