Lockheed Martin has joined an organization that aims to promote awareness of global positioning system technology applications.

The company said Friday it will help the GPS Innovation Alliance advocate for the GPS industry as part of a roster also consisting of Collins Aerospace, Garmin, John Deere and Trimble.

“The reality is almost every industry and individual now uses GPS' positioning, navigation and timing signals every day, several times a day,“ said Johnathon Caldwell, vice president of navigation systems at Lockheed Martin's space segment.

He added that GPS is now an asset to the U.S. economy, national infrastructure and defense. Lockheed provided GPS IIR-M and GPS III satellites that have contributed to the performance of the U.S. Space Force's GPS constellation.
