It sounds like you referring to the satellites them selves....right.
If an enemy nation (since this is way over any terrorist head) decided to go to war with the US, a very smart move on there part would be to take out
gps sats. The US has 27 in use now, for a country as big as China or Russia they would probably have to take out around a dozen....and that would put
a serious dent in all military playbooks.
Of course if they did that that would be an act of war, and its likely the counrty would be a pile of rubble in the days and weeks to come. The US
military could still have communication, using various telecommunication sats that are out there. And they would likely start filling the B-2's with
laser guided bombs.
Europe is creating its own gps, its called Galileo. They plan on having a constellation of 30 birds, they have one so far. China is also apart of
that system. The US put pressure on Europe about this issue, and if China attacks the US using Europes Galileo system then Europe will (basically)
cut them off. Meaning I would guess in about 15-20 years from now China will start putting its own gps like system up there.
