The training course aims to create awareness about small satellites, space technology and related opportunities by dissminating knowledge required for small satellite technology and infrastructure required for small satellite development. The objective is also to sensitize professionals in developing, launching and utilizing the benefits of small satellites.
On 1 August 2014, the U.S. Air Force launched the seventh of its GPS 2F series of positioning, navigation and timing satellites from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
This new GPS 2F satellites, which will be one of 31 active satellites in the constellation, provide better accuracy and resistance to jamming than the previous generation of GPS satellites, most of which are still in operation. The launch helps bolster a GPS fleet whose satellites are beginning to show their age, Air Force officials say.
