How GPS works and its importance in our lives

We know GPS as a way to find our way around the world.  It was created in 1972 and is still valid today.  Check out the movie “The Lonely Halls Meeting “ on Amazon to meet the team that created GPS.  Today, GPS affects so many aspects of our lives.  One aspect is timing to keep the internet working and financial transaction tagged and your cell phone operating.  Another is positioning used in agriculture, air and ground transportation and in operations such as dredging and construction. GPS makes multiple activities of human beings more productive and access is free.

Gaylord Green, a GPS founder, will hope to give you an understanding of how GPS works and its importance in our lives.  He will cover some of the interesting stories in developing  the system and how the user capability has improved.
