Take a look at: <http://www.gps.gov/applications/timing/>.
What it says is that *each* GPS Satellite has multiple atomic clocks on-board.
The GPS Satellite System Synchronizes within its self to keep accurate time.
The loss of NIST in Fort Collins should NOT alter GPS timing.

P.S. This also why I am in the process of developing a 1PPS Trimble Revolution Board System that will lock a 10MC Oscillator with the GPS System. This will keep a 10MC reference in my shack no matter what happens to NIST or the inability to set my transceiver as close as possible to a very tight standard.
