Fortunately, knowing where Santa is doesn't guarantee your kid will be able to find him once he gets there. The big boys and girls from OnStar will play this year, once again, with the other children, dressed in military uniforms, from the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD).
Together, the two organizations will be joining hands in tracking Santa. NORAD will use its North Warning Radar System, geo-synchronous satellites with infrared sensors and other technologies to pin point the man dressed in red by Coca Cola decades back, while OnStar will tell the world what NORAD knows.
"We are excited that OnStar is a NORAD Tracks Santa program sponsor once again this year," said James Graybeal, deputy chief of staff for communication, Headquarters NORAD and USNORTHCOM.
"OnStar adds another layer to the program. In addition to tracking Santa on the web or by calling in to the operations center, it's neat that you can locate Santa by pushing a button in your car, wherever you are.”
So, if you are an OnStar subscriber, you'll be able to tell your kid where Santa is this year (this will make things tricky if Santa just left Arizona, where you live, and reached Qatar in a matter of seconds, so the lie you tell your kid must be in perfect sync with the NORAD radar).
