Apple has acquired Coherent Navigation, according to various media reports.

Coherent Navigation is a Bay Area GPS firm founded in 2008 by engineers from Stanford and Cornell. One of its areas of focus was high-integrity GPS (iGPS), an enhanced version of GPS that uses both normal, high-altitude GPS satellites and lower-altitude voice and data satellites from Iridium to increase the accuracy of a consumer’s GPS reading from the ground.

The acquisition seems to be Apple’s latest efforts to bolster its mapping capabilities.
