The 11Bravo post above is B.S. "GPS provides two levels of service: A Standard Positioning Service (SPS) for general civil use and an encoded Precise Positioning Service (PPS) primarily intended for use by the Department of Defense and U.S. allies."
PPS is NOT Pulse per second??
Furthermore there is no need to degrade global precision of the signal when it can be done on a regional (war-zone) basis.
