Codeless and Semi-Codeless Access to the Global Positioning System

Docket ID: NOAA-NESDIS-2014-0045
Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
Parent Agency: Department of Commerce (DOC)
The Office of Space Commercialization seeks comments on a plan to transition the installed base of codeless and semi-codeless Global Positioning System (GPS) user equipment to next-generation equipment utilizing the modernized civil GPS signals known as L2C and L5. The plan was developed under the auspices of the National Executive Committee for Space-Based Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT). Under the plan, the Department of Defense, as the operator of GPS, will continueenabling codeless/semi-codeless GPS access until December 31, 2020, by which time the L2C and L5 signals will be available on 24 or more modernized GPS satellites. Users should re-equip to use the modernized signals, since codeless/semi-codeless GPS access cannot be assured beyond 2020.
