US: Security upgrades developed by Lockheed Martin for the current ground control system of the US Air Force’s GPS, are now fully functional. The GPS Intrusion Protection Reinforcement (GIPR) technology refresh is part of the Air Force’s strategy to update the current GPS system and to ensure the availability of its services for more than one billion global military, civilian and commercial users daily. GIPR advances the Operational Control Segment’s ability to protect data and infrastructure, enhance the sustainability of the system, and meet future GPS operational requirements. It also resolves many equipment obsolescence issues and increases system maintainability with modern vendor supported hardware and operating systems.
