THE WHITE HOUSEOffice of the Press SecretaryFor Immediate Release May 1, 2000

STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT REGARDING THE UNITED STATES\' DECISION TO STOP DEGRADING GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM ACCURACY

Bill: Today, I am pleased to announce that the United States will stop the intentional degradation of the Global Positioning System (GPS) signals available to the public beginning at midnight tonight. We call this degradation feature Selective Availability (SA). This will mean that civilian users of GPS will be able to pinpoint locations up to ten times more accurately than they do now.

Q: What happened?

A: Selective Availability was removed

Global Positioning System

  • What’s next: longer life expectancy and higher accuracy
    • GPS Block IIF – 2 of 12 launched (last in Aug., 2011)
    • GPS Block III (under development)

  • LiDAR – air and ground based
    • 30 year old technology
    • Cost effective only recently
  • System components
    • Laser scanner with a precise clock
    • Requires robust computer support
