The plan contains an executive overview of the overall program and supporting program efforts, GPS and Global Orbiting Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS) descriptions (Appendices A and B, respectively), descriptions of the individual projects and subprojects comprising the overall program (Appendix C), program milestones (Appendix D), Program Manager's Charter (Appendix E), a list of critical satellite navigation milestones already achieved (Appendix F), and a list of acronyms used in the plan (Appendix G).
