"Today we can't even imagine a world without GPS. There's a generation of people who don't even know a world without GPS."
Gen. (Ret.) William Shelton, former head of Air Force Space Command, as quoted in Inside GNSS, November 14, 2016
"GPS is a worldwide enabler that billions of users depend on, and it's critical to keeping the United States in the forefront of position, navigation, and timing (PNT) services across the globe."
Gen. John E. Hyten, Commander, U.S. Air Force Space Command, in a Q&A with Inside GNSS, September 16, 2016
"GPS is a widely used aid for navigation, land surveying, map making, targeting, and various scientific uses. It provides a reliable 3-dimensional (3D) positioning capability as well as precise timing information used in many applications, including synchronization for cellular networks and wireless carriers in a multitude of countries. GPS and the rest of our space assets provide our military the 'ultimate high ground' with an upper hand over the rest of the world."
Robert Cardillo, Director, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, in prepared testimony for the House Armed Services Committee, Subcommittee on Strategic Forces, March 15, 2016
"The Global Positioning System (GPS), in particular, is used for every mode of transportation, and there are numerous safety and efficiency applications of this enabling technology that provide tremendous benefit to America's transportation infrastructure. GPS is a key technology for vehicle collision-warning and crash-avoidance systems while enabling shorter routes, increased time and fuel savings, and reduced traffic delays across all modes of transportation."
Karen L. Van Dyke, Director, Positioning, Navigation, and Timing & Spectrum Management, U.S. Department of Transportation, in prepared testimony for the Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation, July 28, 2015
"GPS is a widely used aid for navigation, land surveying, map making, targeting, and various scientific uses. It provides a reliable 3-dimensional (3D) positioning capability as well as precise timing information used in many applications, including synchronization for cellular networks and wireless carriers in a multitude of countries. GPS and the rest of our space assets provide our military the 'ultimate high ground' with an upper hand over the rest of the world.

"And the investments don't always pay off. But when they do, they change our lives in ways that we could never have imagined. Computer chips and GPS technology, the Internet -- all these things grew out of government investments in basic research."
President Barack Obama, in remarks on the BRAIN Initiative and American Innovation, April 2, 2013
