Notable among the modernization initiatives is an interest in implementing new satellite signal designs.

'Don't touch me,' said Canada. 'I won't!' said the USA. So they moved 20 feet apart
NPR
The U.S. and Canada may be as lovey-dovey as two neighbors can get, but according to a charming video history by CGP Prey, both countries agreed to tuck themselves a little bit in, 10 feet back for America, 10 feet back for Canada, creating a corridor of open, surveillable, clear space between them. This ribbon of emptiness is constantly monitored, regularly gardened and persists for 5,500 continuous miles — considered the longest deforested straight line in the world — protecting the U.S. and Canada from interlopers, or beavers without passports.

INSCOM points toward greater use of open standards
FCW
The Army Intelligence and Security Command's recent deployment of a large-scale geospatial database is hard evidence of the increasing government demand for IT solutions based on open standards, according to a manager on the project. The federal government "wants to move toward more open standards as opposed to being locked into one vendor from this standpoint," Bill Mannel, SGI's general manager of compute services, told FCW.
