GNSS = GPS + GLONASS + future additional satellite systems
Global Positioning System (GPS): 24 Satellites (USA)
GLONASS : 18 Satellites (Russia)
Galileo: 2 Satellites (European Union)
Need 5 satellites to maintain RTK-fix
Satellites broadcast several pieces of information
Let’s put some numbers on it
Altitude = 12,500mi.
Speed of light = 186,000 mi/sec
Transmission Time = 0.067 sec
What happens if we are off a little?
0.001 sec * 186,000 mi/sec = 186 mi
