Finding Your Way with the Garmin GPS V
May/June 2002 (vol. 4 no. 3)
pp. 10-13

Global positioning system (GPS) technology began with the launch of the first Navstar satellite in 1978. By 1994, a full constellation of 24 satellites was orbiting Earth, providing military personnel with precise positioning data for such tasks as troop movements, artillery targeting, and missile guidance. Many of the most impressive military videos seen over the past 15 years have partially resulted from the Navstar satellite constellation's success.
