As a software engineer interested in traffic safety, this report intrigues me. Did you know that GPS is accurate enough to tell whether a plane is on the runway, about to turn on to it, or taking off?

You only need accuracy to within 50 feet for that, and GPS is much more accurate. All GPS devices I've seen also can calculate speed and direction.

Using GPS for position, speed and direction could revolutionize air traffic control. --Ed Poor 11:32, 27 March 2007 (EDT)
