Here are some very detailed satellite photos of Baghdad. You may need broadband because of the image sizes.

It is amazing looking at these that we can pinpoint a target and have so little collateral damage.

Amazing!  Thanks for posting the link. Talked to a Deere dealer the other day, and the farmers can locate a corn seed within 2-3 inches using the Ag GPS equipment on their tractors/planters. So pinpointing a bomb probably doesn't need to get much better than that.  ;D

I see you have been watching the FOX flyovers also.   It's shocking how all the other news networks spin things and FOX don't as much, or maybe I just see things the way they do.   What ever it is I feel like I get more of the truth from FOX.

CAT has recently went into a joint venture with
Trimble Navigation,  a company with offices in
Silicon Valley and New Zealand.  Our dept has
located some people in NZ and vice versa. I was
talking with a couple of the NZ folks in the coffee
kiosk the other day about what it would take to
jam a GPS system. Their response,  a medium
sized microwave oven. Fortunately it takes a little
engineering on top of that.  

Since I work for a multinational company I daily interact
with people from a multitude of cultural and religious
backgrounds.  In fact the most recent addition to my team
speaks Arabic, is of Lebanese decent and was born
in Kuwait. He has two sisters and an uncle who still live in
Kuwait.   I know other people from Pakistan, Iran,
Egypt, Palestine,  India,  Bangladesh,  Malaysia,  China
England, Germany, Japan, Poland, and I have probably forgotten a few.
Oh yes, we even have some Canadians working here.
The fellow from Iran was even a tank commander
and fought in the Iran-Iraq war.  
A command bond that we all share is a great respect
for one another.  Our department puts up a Christmas
tree  that is decorated with items from all around the world.
We also have an ethnic food festival in the office around
Christmas time.  
I guess I don't know where I am heading with this but
wouldn't it be nice if we all lived in peace and didn't have
to have wars to get rid of regimes that don't respect
individual freedom and liberty.  About 15 years ago
I worked with a person at CAT from Israel whose parents
were both survivors of Nazi camps.  I naively said, they were the lucky ones.  Her comment was not necessarily because
they had to live and cope with those bad memories.

Thank heavens for people like Jeff B's father and my late uncle who were willing  to risk their lives for someone else's freedom.  I am proud to be an American.

As far as jamming GPS I was just reading an article about certain RV powered TV antennas with a flaw.  It seems they jam GPS and play heck with Cell phones.

The Military GPS recievers use both L1 and L2 frequencies.  Civilian models only use L1 or Coarse Aquisition (C/A) code.  A big part of the Military GPS recievers is antispooffing technology.  This technology and the codes they use are highly classified.  

The submeter and decimeter accuracy civilian GPS are capable of obtaining is only with dual frequency recievers.  These don't use the L2 frequency but rely on radio signals from a beacon to send corrections to the reciever.  My understanding is that our bombs carry submeter quality GPS recievers.
