The U.S. Air Force has kicked off full operations for its updated global positioning system security developed by Lockheed Martin in an effort to help protect data and keep satellites available to users.

The GPS Intrusion Protection Reinforcement technology has been integrated into the GPS master control station and the alternate master control station following the upgrade, Lockheed said Monday.

“The GPS control segment sustainment contract is vitally important to the sustainment of positioning, navigation and timing services for our military, government officials and citizens,” said Vinny Sica, vice president of Lockheed Martin’s space ground solutions.

The Air Force intends for the update to maintain the availability of the GPS services for global military, civilian and commercial users.
