So, what is the GPS?

  • A Global Positioning System that uses the radio signals of 24 satellites to provide reliable positioning, navigation, and timing services.

  • The GPS is made up of three parts:

    • satellites orbiting the Earth;

    • control and monitoring stations on Earth; and

    • the GPS receivers owned by users.

  • GPS satellites send signals from space that are picked up and identified by GPS receivers. Each GPS receiver then provides 3D location (latitude, longitude, and altitude) plus the time.
