Boeing Forms Team for GPS Project

September 28, 2000

The Boeing Co. said it has assembled a team of four leaders from the global information industry to compete for what ultimately would be a multibillion-dollar contract to overhaul the Global Positioning System for navigation and timing.

Boeing's Government Information & Communications Systems unit in Anaheim and its partners have bid on the $16-million first phase of the project, a yearlong study to help define the next generation of GPS technology, called GPS III.

The U.S. Air Force is expected next month to select two competing teams from three bidders, said Allen Lowry, Boeing's GPS III program manager in Anaheim.
