From Smart Bombs to Smartphones and where we are going from here

Twenty-five years ago, GPS was an amazing high-tech military system that helped U.S. troops navigate during Operation Desert Storm with incredible accuracy across a featureless desert! Now smartphones not only tell us where we are, but enable “enhanced reality” apps to lead us to the best restaurants, cheapest gas, or cleanest restrooms based on our current location.

This is the story of intrigue, political dealings and how the GPS came to be …and where it is going.
