The GPS History   
I have read that the global positioning system was created primarily for the military, since it was a project of our Dept. of Defense. Don't you think GPS will only be used for waging wars?

I guess so. Maybe they use the GPS to track terrorists, prisoners, fugitives. The wonders of technology!

Not only does it serve as a Military Gadget for straying detractors, GPS was also used by civilians, for mapping purposes, it helps them guide through wherever points they are going.

Also, GPS was originally meant for Military Purposes, but as time passes by, it became a dual purpose gadget, not only for Military but also in Civilian Industry.
