Government Accountability Office, GPS: Actions Needed to Address Ground System Development Problems and User Equipment Production Readiness (GAO-15-657) (Sept. 9, 2015) (full-text).

Overview Edit

The satellite-based GPS provides positioning, navigation, and timing data to users worldwide. The U.S. Air Force is modernizing the satellite, ground control, and user equipment segments to enhance GPS performance.

The Senate and House Armed Services Committee reports accompanying bills for the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015 included provisions for GAO to review the status of OCX development and DOD's efforts to field M-code signal capability. This report addresses (1) the extent to which DOD is meeting cost, schedule, and performance requirements for OCX; (2) the progress DOD is making in delivering M-code capable MGUE by the end of fiscal year 2017; and(3) the challenges DOD faces in synchronizing the development of GPS III, OCX, and MGUE to deploy M-code.
