The Global Positioning Systems Directorate (SMC/GP) is a joint service effort directed by theU.S. Air Force and managed at the Space and Missile Systems Center, Air Force Space Command, Los Angeles Air Force Base, California. The directorate is the DoD acquisition officefor developing and producing GPS satellites, ground systems and military user equipment. GPS is a space-based radio-positioning system nominally consisting of a minimum of 24-satellite constellation that provides navigation and timing information to military and civilian users worldwide. In addition to the satellites, the system consists of a worldwide satellite control network and GPS receiver units that acquire the satellites’ signals and translate them into precise position and timing information.
“The Ginisis Group is excited to be working with the GPS program. I started my contracting career at GPS, back in 2003 and it’s great to be back”, says Errol Gorman CEO of the Ginisis Group.
