Thanks for the point ... I guess they are using one of the low orbit sats to uplink the location ... using solar as an energy source completely escaped me. Note how the other devices are not ear mounted ...
No, I understand how GPS works, what I was wondering was how they sent the position data back to the user ... and my guess is via a low orbit platform. Those have been around for ages ... I know of one system used by USCG for emergencies where the transmitter turns on when it comes into contact with sea water and it sends out a beacon which is picked up by one of the low orbit sats which alerts the USCG and provides location information. Course, but location nonetheless.They work like a GPS navigator, straight off a series a satellites.
Helicopter mothers would be a wonderful market for a human version.
In New Mexico a losing candidate shot up the homes of six of his political opponents, and was arrested today.
The perp had 19 felonies on his record, spent 7 years in prison, and still won his primary to stand in the general election.
Detectives identified Pena as their key suspect using a combination of cellphone and vehicle records, witness interviews and bullet casings collected at the lawmakers’ homes, police said. His arrest came one week after Medina announced they had identified a suspect in the shootings.
Maybe the time to vet this guy was before he ran for office?
But even today, cellphones catch criminals, just after the crime.
