The U.S. Army is working on getting some new ordinance:
The Army is fast tracking a GPS guided 120mm mortar round to Afghanistan in response to an urgent request for precision mortar fire from commanders on the ground there, and should be fielded by the end of the year. Called the Accelerated Precision Mortar Initiative (APMI), it improves upon the current round’s 136-meter Circular Error Probable (CEP) reducing it to about 10-meters.
Reading the comments to this article you will find out that 10 meters is the maximum. They are hoping to get about 5 meters.
Just a few minutes before reading this I had pointed out to Barb how accurate the location information given by my Windows Phone 7 Series is. Not only did it put the little diamond for the location of the phone on the correct house–it put it in the correct corner of our house.
Don’t buy a mobile phone unless you can remove the battery.
Update: I forgot to include the link to the article. That has been fixed.
