GPS trade association formed

Members of the GPS industry have formed the GPS Innovation Alliance (GPSIA). The goal of the GPSIA is to educate policy makers and the public about the GPS system and to protect the interests of organizations and users that rely upon groups that use the GPS constellation.

GPSIA will be based in Washington, D.C., with support from the Coalition to Save Our GPS and the U.S. GPS Industry Council (USGIC).

Two members of the USGIC, NovAtel and Topcon Positioning Systems join John Deere, Garmin and Trimble as founding members of GPSIA.
