Did you know that GPS can not be used to guide an ICBM? GPS units are programmed to automatically turn off if the unit is moving faster than 1,200 miles per hour and above 60,000 feet. This limitation was agreed on by the USA and USSR during the Cold War to prevent military use of civilian GPS units. Most ICBMs use different tracking methods, such as pre-programmed coordinates or radio guidance.
