China is developing the low orbit navigation system

Chinese researchers are developing a satellite navigation system to assist the development of unmanned vehicles.

The low orbit Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) is developed by China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.

The system is based on a low orbit micro-nano satellite that was launched together with the fourth Fengyun-III meteorological satellite in November 2017.

The low orbit navigation satellite can conduct high accuracy positioning down to the centimeter level in five minutes.

High-accuracy positioning on the ocean and across remote mountainous areas will be helped by the low orbit SBAS, which can also act as ground observation stations.

The SBAS is considered the best choice for unmanned vehicles, since it has the advantages of lower costs and global coverage.

The low orbit SBAS is also expected to be applied in agricultural drones and landslide monitoring.

GPS Monitoring upon guilty is a safety measure, not a punishment

The Wisconsin Supreme Court says a judge wasn’t required to tell a man he would face a lifetime of GPS monitoring upon pleading guilty to child sex crimes because such monitoring is a public safety measure, not a form of punishment.

The court concluded in a rare 7-0 decision that monitoring is designed to protect the public rather than punish the offender further.

“Lifetime monitoring provides a middle ground between releasing dangerous sex offenders into the public wholly unsupervised and civil commitment,” Justice Michael Gableman wrote in the ruling. “In light of the ‘frightening and high’ rate of recidivism for sex offenders, the relatively minimal intrusion of lifetime GPS tracking … is not excessive in relation to protecting the public.”

Wisconsin enacted a law in 2006 that requires serious child sex offenders and people deemed sexually violent to submit to lifetime GPS tracking by wearing ankle transmitters when they complete their sentences. Tampering with the transmitters is a felony. The law allows offenders to petition to have tracking terminated after 20 years and allows the Department of Corrections to end it if the offender becomes incapacitated. Tracking also ends if the offender decides to move out of state.

The case at hand involves DeAnthony Muldrow. The Manitowoc man pleaded guilty in 2010 to second-degree sexual assault of a child and third-degree sexual assault. He was sentenced to a year in prison, a year on extended supervision and probation. He’ll be subject to lifetime monitoring when his probation ends in 2022. Muldrow sought to withdraw his guilty plea in 2015 because no one told him he would face lifetime GPS monitoring. He argued that he wasn’t told of a form a punishment he would face, which made his plea uninformed and a violation of his due process rights.
