GPS System Might FAIL

Internet Doomsday is closer at hand.

According to a Government Accounting Office report, the Global Positioning System has been so mismanaged that when aging equipment starts to fail, there may be no new satellites to take their place. “If the Air Force does not meet its schedule goals for development of GPS IIIA satellites,” the report states, “there will be an increased likelihood that… the overall GPS constellation will fall below the number of satellites required to provide the level of GPS service that the U.S. government commits to.”
