Coming Thick and Fast

For some reason I seem to be into blogging at the moment.

The EU Satellite Navigation Competition, Galileo Masters has just announced the winners of this year's competition. SciTech systems have won the award incorporating sat nav technology into life jackets. Now, if two of my passions, Safety of Life at Sea and GPS were going to come together this is a great idea! As they say, it's one thing knowing where someone hit the water, it's another thing knowing where they are by the time you look for them. Some tidal streams are mighty fast and you don't want to be looking 10 miles in the wrong direction when someone is immersed in the ocean.
