According to a recent report released from Research and Markets , the "Global GPS Market, company profiles, share, trends, analysis, opportunities, segmentation and forecast 2016 - 2022," "The global GPS market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 23.7% during 2016 to 2022."

In late September the U.S. Air Force awarded Lockheed Martin $395 million in contract options for the production of the ninth and tenth Global Positioning System III (GPS III) satellite.
GPS III satellites will deliver three times better accuracy, provide up to eight times improved anti-jamming capabilities and extend spacecraft life to 15 years, 25 percent longer than any GPS satellites on orbit today. GPS III's new L1C civil signal also will make it the first GPS satellite to be interoperable with other international global navigation satellite systems.
Gopher Protocol (OTCQB: GOPH) recently announced they had started building its initial 50 Guardian Sphere Devices , designed for tracking pets as well as other applications. The Sphere is an innovative tracking device that can easily be attached to a pet's collar and then transmit real-time location information to the smartphone(s) or website account of the registered owner of the device. The Sphere has a replaceable battery and operates on the exclusive Guardian private network, which provides owners with the unique ability to obtain real-time tracking information without the need for GPS, Wi-Fi or cellular service. The Sphere includes state of the art radio technology, a GPS system and micro controller systems, with a potential "back-up" Bluetooth unit. The Sphere sends signals in specific intervals to report on its location. The Sphere's system analyzes the information using its proprietary, advanced mathematical modeling software that precisely calculates the Sphere's location. The Sphere's mobile application then presents the exact location of the Sphere on the map. An additional unique system feature is the Sphere's Emergency Alert system. Users of the Sphere have the ability to transmit emergency alerts directly from their mobile apps, which transmit their Sphere locations. All registered users located in such a Sphere's proximity will be notified about the Emergency and may notify the user about the Sphere's recovery (which we fondly refer to as a "private emergency alert").
