Here is some exciting new about the development of the Next Generation Global Positioning System III. Once these new GPS satellites are in orbit our GPSr will gain more accuracy which might make finding a tricky Geocache much easier!
This propulsion system is part of the rocket used to guide the new GPS III into its final position and keep it in position once in place.
“The delivery of the propulsion core demonstrates that this program is on firm footing and poised to deliver on its commitments,” said Lt Col Todd Caldwell, the U.S. Air Force’s GPS III program manager. “In this challenging budget environment, we are focused on efficient program execution to deliver critical new capabilities to GPS users worldwide.”
