+Iowa Tom Posted December 22, 2005 Share Posted December 22, 2005 Here is some info I cut from a thread in a satellite observing group I belong to. Someone here may be interested in reading it. It’s titled, “U.S. President announces Roger Easton recipient of National Medal of Technology” I quote: "Roger L. Easton is a recipient of the 2004 National Medal of Technology – the highest U.S. honor for technology. Among Easton's many inventions, two are particularly important to our hobby: the Naval Space Surveillance System (Navspasur), and the NAVSTAR-Global Positioning System (GPS)." End quote. The thread is archived here. http://satobs.org/seesat/Nov-2005/0245.html -it Quote Link to comment
