Abstract : From the first GPS test satellite entering into orbital operation on 22 February 1978 to the launching aloft of the 23d operational satellite on 28 October 1993, the GPS navigation and global positioning system has been in the midst of a net organization process which has gone on for 16 years. Moreover, it has created a GPS enterprise which is international in character. Several hundred thousand personnel were engaged with an output value of close to 10 billion U.S. dollars. This article introduces application benefits associated with GPS during the Gulf War as well as the results of applications in Chinese map making departments. Finally, two revelations are summarized from among GPS applications.
