How the GPS Won Funding by the Department of Defense is the story of the leader of the Rockwell International's (now Boeing) Global Positioning System (GPS) engineering teams and subcontractors that overpowered the overwhelming factions in the Air Force and its contractor, Lockheed Missiles and Space Company management and personnel that wanted GPS to fail and how the author created a new technology that allowed each Boeing's GPS satellite's atomic clocks to operate at their peak performance during every U.S. and international organization's multi-service system wide testing including NATO's. This caused Boeing's GPS satellite's performance to exceed all expectations and the same technology is used today in the design of the new Lockheed Martin/Air Force F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and Boeing's new 787 Dreamliner commercial aircraft. An agreement by Boeing of the events in this book will result in a claim by the U.S. Air Force for $55M for Boeing's SV-7/NAVSTAR 5 and $20M for the Atlas F that launched SV-7 due to only one year of use prior to its avoidable loss in its 3.5 year mission life.
