WHAT’S THE MEANING

Global Positioning System (also known as GPS) is a satellite navigation system that was originally developed by the United States government for military purposes and has become fully operational in 1995. The United States Air Force started to utilize it since then.

DID YOU KNOW

In response to the threats of the cold war, the United States embarked on the quest for developing a new global navigation device. GPS was primarily intended for military purposes only. However, a tragedy in 1983 happened when Soviet Union shot down Korean Airlines Flight 007 when the flight entered a prohibited airspace owned by the Soviet, killing 269 passengers of Korean Airlines Flight 007, and that lead to the declaration of President Ronald Reagan to allow public access to the United States military GPS. Although it was opened for public use, high-frequency GPS signals are still reserved for military use until on May 1, 2000, GPS for civilian use has become more accurate. Today, the number of people living in the household who are utilizing GPS on their smartphones reached a soaring 107.41 million in 2017. Moreover, ever since the first installation of GPS in automobiles in 1996, the number of households in the United States who have been using GPS in their cars amounted to 58.42 million in spring of 2017. Perhaps, GPS offers more than its accuracy to detect your location on the map—it offers comfort and security for people who are easily lost and allows people to track their family and loved ones with ease.
