The Global Positioning Systems (GPS) Directorate will host an open public forum on August 22 for the following NAVSTAR GPS public documents: IS-GPS-200 (Navigation User Interfaces), IS-GPS-705 (User Segment L5 Interfaces), IS-GPS-800 (User Segment L1C Interface), and ICD-GPS-870 (Navstar Next Generation GPS Operational Control Segment [OCX] to User Support Community Interfaces).

The Directorate requests that persons interested in attending and
participating in this forum should register by Friday (August 1, 2014). 

The forum seeks to collect issues and comments for analysis and possible integration into the next GPS public document revisions. The GPS Directorate will not process any technical baseline changes this fiscal year; however, all currently submitted comments on the GPS public documents will be considered along with the comments received at this year’s open forum in the next revision cycle.

Registration information should be sent to Timothy Johnson email <timothy.johnson.91.ctr@us.af.mil> or <SMCGPER@us.af.mil>, providing attendee’s name, organization, telephone number, mailing and email addresses, and country of citizenship. Johnson may also be contacted for further information about the event, telephone (310) 416-8476.

Comments will be collected, catalogued, and discussed as potential inclusions to the next versions of IS-GPS-200, IS-GPS-705, IS-GPS-800, and ICD-GPS-870. If accepted, these changes will be processed through the formal GPS Directorate change process.

All comments must be submitted in a Comments Resolution Matrix (CRM). These forms along with current versions of the documents and the official meeting notice are posted at <http://www.gps.gov/technical/icwg>.

The forum will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PDT) at the Leidos Facility, 300 N. Sepulveda Blvd., 3rd Floor, CR-3020ABC, El Segundo, California. Identification will be required at the entrance of the Leidos facility (passport, state or Federal ID).
