GPS 101 Briefing

  • SVC-200, Capitol Visitor Center (map)

Lost and need directions? Requesting a rideshare from home? Or maybe a visit to a new city has you seeking nearby restaurants? Thanks to our mobile devices and the app economy, the Global Positioning System, or GPS, has become a household name. But GPS is much more than just a tool for navigation. Nearly every sector of our economy depends on it, from agriculture and banking, to aviation, defense and public safety. GPS is also driving new and emerging technologies, including drones, autonomous vehicles and wearables.

Join us for a discussion of the policy issues associated with protecting, promoting and enhancing GPS.

Featured speakers will include:

  • U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL)

  • Colonel Curtis Hernandez, USAF, Director National Security Space Policy, National Space Council

Additional speakers will be announced.

Important Reminder: Please be mindful that all attendees must pass through Capitol security to access the event. We encourage you to arrive well in advance of the start time.
