GPS Won’t Die Next Year

May
21
2009

There are lots of news reports going around that might make you believe the GPS system is doomed for failure next year. But before you start stalking up on paper maps and compasses, consider reading the facts for yourself before accepting the judgement of various news organizations. But the sky (and the GPS satellites in) is not falling.

There are two threads in our forums discussing the topic, Could the System fail us by 2010? as well as this GPS satellites thread. Both contain plenty of smart comments from users as well as myself.

The Air Force Space Command, in charge of the system has been talking about it on Twitter. You can read a transcript of the Q&A as well for good insights.

Just take the sensationalized news reports with a few hefty grains of salt.
