The Global Positioning System
is at this time and age the most common system used for navigation and positioning all over the world. Not only for maritime use, but also for land-based applications and aviation. The satellitebased system has been developed and is operated by the US Department of Defense in order to provide an accurate and reliable service, which include a 24- hour global coverage. The GPS system consists of approx. 24 satellites which orbit around the Earth at an altitude of approx. 20,200 km. The satellites transmit perfectly synchronized data. However, depending on the position, the signals will reach the receiver at a slightly different time. By adding the measured time difference to the known position of the satellites it is possible to calculate the ship’s position to within a few meters.
