NOTE: B-roll and soundbites attached to this release.

7/15/2015 - SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Schriever officials hosted a ceremony today, in honor of the Global Positioning System's 20 years of full operational capability.

The Air Force confirmed the GPS full operational capability July 17, 1995. During the last 20 years, GPS has become an integral part of technology that affects the lives of billions of people around the world.

Members of the 2nd and 19th Space Operations Squadrons here conduct the command and control mission of the 39 satellite GPS constellation. Beyond its essential capability for the military, GPS is a worldwide utility that provides the highest accuracy data available to people all around the world and enables such vital activities as weather forecasting, transportation, global commerce and farming/agriculture.

Following the post launch presentation, Colorado Springs City Councilmember Larry Bagley presented the GPS operators with a proclamation on behalf of the city council declaring July 17, 2015, GPS Day.
