GPS FMS Workshop

05 November 2012

Around 50 attendees from 16 different GPS user nations (ranging from NATO countries, partner nations and others such as Chile, Colombia, Australia and Taiwan) participated in the workshop organized and chaired by the US GPS Directorate and hosted at NSPA on 22 - 23 October 2012.

The meeting, the second of its kind, was chaired by Col. Bernie Gruber, Commander, Global Positioning Systems (GPS) Directorate, Space and Missile Systems Center, Air Force Space Command, Los Angeles Air Force Base, California.

The briefings provided information on subjects ranging from the NAVSTAR GPS program to the possibility to procure through Foreign Military Sales for specific applications such as Paveway, Improved Target Acquisition System (for the TOW Weapon System) and Navigation Systems.

NSPA took this opportunity to brief on the Agency, the current reform efforts and the services offered by the NSPA GPS Support Partnership.

Several Nations briefed on their organizations and on their use of GPS systems.

A very good exchange of information took place and a list of topics was established for the next workshop.
