Change + Commitment = Progress

Headshot: Tracy CozzensAs George Bernard Shaw said, “Progress is impossible without change.” Our industry is a great example of that. We have grown from a single GPS service to multiple GNSS constellations, to today’s increasing integration of GNSS solutions with other positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) technologies.

Since its founding 30 years ago, GPS World also has been constantly adapting and advancing so we can better report on, and help shape, our brilliant GNSS/PNT industry.

GPS World now includes expanded coverage of PNT solutions and related integration trends. We also dive deeper into GNSS/PNT developments through Q&As with leading industry suppliers, and we deliver more leading-edge application stories in high demand by our readers.

Other recent changes at GPS World revolve around our editorial staff. This month, we say goodbye to Alan Cameron, our editor-at-large, who served our media brand for 19 years. We wish Alan well.


“Our commitment to delivering timely, accurate, insightful GNSS/PNT intel has never wavered.”
