Air Force Says GPS Will Not Stop Working

Following up on this post: the Air Force says that even if the GPS network drops below 24 satellites, GPS will still work, albeit with degraded performance. On Twitter, Air Force Space Command says that “[t]he issue is not whether GPS will stop working. There’s only a small risk we will not continue to exceed our performance standard.” And that appears to be the worst-case scenario. See PC World’s coverage. Via Gizmodo.
