    i think loads of clubsnappers being overobsessed with shooting xmm together is creepy too.

    But at any time, an airplane always have direct LOS to satelites...... why need A-GPS..

    The GPS constellation alone is not reliable enough to land a commercial airliner automatically without the assistance of ground based reference stations, even a single fault has to be detected and make known within split seconds so the entire Ground Based Augmentation System (GBAS) system can be shut down automatically with immediate effect if necessary.

    The last thing you want is a wide-body commercial airliner with hundreds of living souls on-board slamming to the side of a runway at approximately 300 km/hr in zero visibility condition simply because the timing of the atomic clock on a GPS satellite drifted away uncorrected due to time dilation. It is all about redundancy and designing the system as fail-safe as much as possible.

    Sighed...have to live with it...this word many time my friends said.

    One day we also kena like that guy who suddenly march in the middle of the road and salute to every car. even when police escort him, he still march.

    I think gahment dunno what consequences it will make if they kept pressuring us. calm water doesnt mean there is no crocodile.
