I really want my GPS-guided weapons to land where I tell them to....

...So the idiot who was concerned that Guam might capsize was right that land masses move around then?...

Quartermaster

Yeah, Casey. Plate Tectonics, and all that neat stuff.

Makes me wonder if Oz has CORS stations. GPS dominates in control surveying and CORS stations, here in the US, are an important adjunct. I use them in every control survey I do.

Soon, when we use GPS derived positions, we'll be having to deal with the velocity of the land mass at the local point. Passive control is going away in less than 10 years.

Wow. So the Earth really did move. That must have been tiring. I may want to vacation there.
