This paper covers the major policy issues of the Global Positioning System (GPS). The GPS is a space-based, worldwide, all-weather, continuous position/navigation system being developed by the Department of Defense and scheduled to be fully operational by the end of 1988. Major issues in the GPS Program will be covered. These issues include civil use of GPS, user charges, potential phase-out of other systems after the introduction of the GPS and accuracy enhancement techniques that are being investigated.
