(1.)   In 1978, our Department of Defense started to create a network of 24 satellites intended for military applications. This was called the Global Positioning 

        System (GPS). They wanted to give field soldiers the ability to tell where they were located, in what direction they were going, and how far they had to go. 

        The satellite network was completed in 1994. In the 1980's, the government made it available for civilian use.
