    Hi again!

    First of all, thank you for your answer.
    I know what wikipedia is and that was the first place i visit but it's a bit basic, because it only appears: "Although the cost of maintaining the system is approximately US$400 million per year, including the replacement of aging satellites, GPS is free for civilian use as a public good"

    For example, i would like to know the global cost, the different phases cost (phase I, phase II, phase III). Companys, undertaking that participate...

    Thanks again!

    GPS Cost And Financing

    Hi again,

    First of all thank you for your answer.
    I know that GPS appears in Wikipedia but i find it a bit basic, because it doesn't appear information about:
    - Global GPS Costs.
    - Phase I Cost.
    - Phase II Cost.
    - Phase III Cost.
    - Company's/Membership that participate.

    I need more money information than technical information.

    Thank you very much.

    Marta
