Why do devices with position tracking require an internet connection?

Why do devices with position tracking require an internet connection?
In a few months the European satellite system Galileo will be completed. Most devices with location tracking functions already support it. Even so, their manufacturers should endeavour to implement over-the-air access, as this is the only way that satellite selection can be adjusted on demand as needed – something which can be a critical factor.  By Bernd Hantsche, Director Product Marketing Embedded & Wireless at Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente

Challenges for next-gen military communications

Challenges for next-gen military communications
Military communications (MILCOM) have been the backbone for deployed soldiers since the Vietnam War. While these units have proven their capability and security for decades, the next generation of MILCOM platforms will need to leverage more modern communication technologies that have been developed to enable commercial platforms such as mobile phones and WiFi. Wyatt Taylor, Aerospace and Defense System Engineering Lead, Analog Devices explains.
