“Protecting critical GPS infrastructure is extremely important for public safety,” said Mark Pisani, Exelis Geospatial Systems vice president and general manager of positioning, navigation and timing.
Officials used GPS devices o track and monitor the location of team members and officials during the game, while event organizers and security teams used GPS to pinpoint locations of team vehicles en route to the stadium.
