Background: “…The concept of GPS MT originated as a means to replace tracking radars and reduce their significant operations and maintenance costs….”
Discussion. “Implementation of GPS MT is no longer viewed as essential to shutting down radars, but as an important operational enhancement. Recent studies recognize GPS MT as a key to operationally responsive ranges, given its wider coverage, expanded capacity, and greater accuracy and responsiveness. Meanwhile, upgrades to eleven mission-essential radars will enable shutdown of six redundant radars now being retained to overcome reliability, maintainability, and availability problems. As the same time, GPS MT will add operational flexibility as a third source to complement radar tracking and inertial guidance data.”
