The Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering for 2019 has been awarded jointly to Bradford Parkinson, James Spilker, Hugo FrueHauf, and Richard Schwartz for their work on the Global Positioning System (GPS). This is a wonderful recognition of these engineers and their pioneering efforts 41-years ago to create the Global Position System.
