Lockheed Martin joins the GPS Innovation Alliance
Lockheed Martin has joined the GPS Innovation Alliance (GPSIA), which recognises the importance of GPS to the global economy and is committed to creativity and entrepreneurship in this field.
The company joins 15 other companies and national organisations in the alliance including Collins Aerospace, John Deere and Garmin.
J David Grossman, executive director of GPSIA, said: ‘With a deep and rich history of championing GPS technology and as the leading contractor in developing the next-generation GPS III satellites, Lockheed Martin brings a wealth of experience to help the industry move boldly into the future.’
Lockheed Martin designed and manufactured the existing GPS constellation using its GPS IIR and IIR-M satellites which have continued to function beyond their design life cycle. In January and April 2020, Lockheed launched its latest GPS III satellites into operational orbit.
