DOT Budget Supports WAAS, But Not Civil GPS Signal Monitoring Funding

President Trump's budget request includes funds for the Department of Transportation to operate a civil GPS augmentation system (WAAS). However, the FY 2018 budget includes no DOT funding for GPS civil signal monitoring. It also does not provide a trackable line item for the PNT activities of the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Research & Technology, although such activities remain fully budgeted.

Request
Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) for GPS $102.3M
