Yes, exactly. Probably someone figured out that if a missile goes boom 10 meters or 100 meters away, doesn’t make much of a difference. 😀

One added irony: Coast Guard, which is another branch of the military, placed beacons for something called “differential GPS” (DGPS) all along the US coast. That brings the accuracy down to sub-meter. Go figure!
