On March 26, 2019, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Kirtland Air Force Base to celebrate the opening of Building 578, the Navigation Technology Satellite Integration Laboratory, or NTSIL. Prior to the rib-bon-cutting, the day was celebrated by speeches from Dr. David Chapman, AGT program manager; Bo Bohannon, RVOI branch chief; and Col. Eric J. Felt, commander, Space Vehicles Directorate. The cost of this new building is $3.8 million.

 

This facility provides a laboratory, office space, and additional supporting space, to serve the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Advanced GPS Technologies. These technologies execute the real-world mission in support of the Space Missile Center Global Positioning needs. This building will allow researchers to execute their mission with state-of-the-art GPS capabilities, ensuring our country’s freedom of action in the space and cyberspace domains.
