Enge is also the director of the GPS Research Laboratory, which pioneers satellite-based navigation systems for aviation and maritime use. Two of these systems are in widespread use today. Medium frequency beacons are used worldwide to broadcast differential GPS corrections to some 1.5 million, mostly marine, users. The first satellite based augmentation system came on line for aviation in the United States in July of 2003, and similar systems are being developed in Europe, Japan, and India.

Enge has received the Institute of Navigation’s Kepler, Thurlow and Burka awards for his work. He is also a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a fellow of the ION and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE).
