The article focuses on the new Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite called Block 2F, which was launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida in May 2010. It states that more technologies were applied on the new satellite including automatic identification system (AIS), accurate atomic clocks, and frequency for civilian users. It adds that Navico Ltd. has added the Sonic Hub, an audio system that can be controlled from the navigation display, into their Naval Shore Establishment (NSE) systems.
