from Inside GNSS
A House resolution now up for consideration details the way GPS is used and its impact on the economy. Co-sponsored by Reps. David Loebsack (D-Iowa) and Don Bacon (R-Nebraska) the bill also recognizes "the contributions made by the men and women of the Air Force who are responsible for operating and maintaining the Global Positioning System constellation." The lawmakers noted that GPS-enabled precision agriculture has led to improved grain yields and input cost savings of some $8.2 billion.
