Re-Baseline This!

So, if everything had gone as planned, we would have a new ground control segment (OCX) operating a new generation of satellites (GPS III) as they launch into an expanded constellation in support of modernized military GPS user equipment (MGUE).

But then the best-laid plans. . . .

Wireless Broadband Aspirant's Own GPS Receiver Tests Show Signal Impact

The results from the GPS receiver testing sponsored by would-be wireless broadband provider Ligado are in. A review of the nearly 600 pages of data and analysis suggests that a number of GPS receivers can — by the firm's chosen, but somewhat controversial technical standard — operate in the presence of the company's proposed wireless signals.

Senate Kills GPS OCX Funding Due to Cost Overruns — Now $5.3 Billion and Rising

The Senate Armed Services Committee zeroed out the Pentagon's $393 funding request for the new GPS ground control system during its May 11 markup, asserting that the program's cost overruns — with a total cost that may reach $5.3 billion, up from an original $1.5 billion — had breached the Nunn-McCurdy Act.

Under the act, such a breach could result in termination of the Next Generation Operational Control System or OCX unless the Secretary of Defense goes through an in-depth review of the program and personally certifies its critical importance.

Obstacles Appear to Extending GPS-Based ADS-B for UAV Operations

The seeming efficiency of having unmanned aircraft carry the same GNSS-based collision avoidance transmitters required for manned aircraft has generated a lot of interest as a possibly safe way to easily integrate unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) into the nation’s air traffic control system.
